I always enjoy the speed challenges at the As You See It challenge blog and this challenge was not only an under 10 minute timed challenge but an Elements of Three twist in which to repeat the image three times. Reaching into my never seen ink before stamp sets, I found this Hampton Arts Jillibean Soup’s You’re Tweet. I chose this set because of the sentiment. Definitely need “happy” in our world right now. After I collected all of my supplies, I anxiously hit the start on my timer. Using a sizzix branch/tree embossing folder, I dry embossed on some neutral cardstock and stamped my birds from the stamp set onto the branches in Blue Raspberry, Cherry Red and Black Onyx (Blue Bird, Black Bird and Red….well maybe cardinal….Bird. Added a little layering colored card stock and a piece of patterned paper finishing off with some Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen and wink of stella.
Finished under 10 minutes. Actual time 08:34.35. Fun challenge.
