The card I created today will be entered into two different challenges. The first challenge is from the As You See It Challenge #218 which is a timed challenge of 10 minutes plus shades of brown no other color except neutral.
My card was completed in 8:05.67 which I was surprised by since it took me two days to figure out what I wanted to do and then find the stamps. Unfortunately this is a sympathy card for a cousin who lost her husband at the age of 60. The stamps I used on this card were: StampinUp’s Upsy Daisy which was stamped in GKD chocolate brown ink, the background stamp is Hero Arts Italian Poetry background stamp stamped in Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The background seemed too white so I sponged some of the vintage photo distress ink over the background sentiment. I have several templates for “stencils” on my desk for use so this did save me a step of die cutting a template. The sentiment is GKD’s Sympathy Duo stamp set and stamped in chocolate brown ink. The added bow was made using some Denami Designs ribbon and the bow thankfully came together more quickly than normal. Mounted the card front on some kraft cardstock, added some wink of stella for a little shine and crystalline drops just because. The Bow meets the requirements of Just Us Girls Challenge “Bow” Word Week Challenge
I enjoy the timed challenges….it’s gets the juices flowing!! Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!!
