Happy Friday, everyone! It's time for the weekend, and time for a new As You See It challenge! Here's our theme for this week:
I totally missed the SPEED STAMPING part of this challenge when I first looked at it, so my first card was "disqualified"!!! I'll show it to you later in the post! So I got out my supplies, set my timer and went to work, and came up with this:
I used a thick white cardstock base, added a strip of Ornate Garden Specialty Paper at an angle, stamped the butterfly from Positive Thoughts on some watercolor paper with Stazon ink and diecut it out:
I watercolored it with Flirty Flamingo ink, then stamped a sentiment from Beautiful Day at an angle as well, so it fits with the Inkspirational Challenge this week of Angle It!
I also added a rhinestone to the top of the butterfly, which added about a minute to my time, since I couldn't decide which color to use! Altogether, my time was 4:45! Not bad! I did have everything ready to go so, and it was a very simple layout...but it just goes to show that you don't need a lot of time and supplies to make an awesome card! Now here's the "disqualified" card which definitely took more than 10 minutes to create:
Same stamp set, but I did a watercolor background, added some ribbon and gold trim, and a sentiment from Life is Beautiful. The colors I used were Mint Macaron, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze, so I am entering this one in the Global Design Project's challenge as well!
Be sure to check out what the other designers did with their speed stamping! Then get out your supplies and do some speedy stamping of your own and share it with us as well on the As You See It blog! Thanks for popping in today!
It's been sunny but cool here in the mornings in SE PA; I took this picture the other morning as I sat on the porch to read my Bible and drink my coffee:
I love how you can see the steam rising! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
