Yellow and Gray in 8 min and 47 sec

Today I sat down with two stamp sets, mounted on wood or acrylic ready to stamp, ink opened, markers ready, and timer set to create a flower card in 10 minutes. I tried one yesterday and couldn’t make it happen.

I used only yellow and gray to color and black to stamp on white cardstock. Stamps used are Sweetbriar Rose and Happy Thoughts, both by Stampin’Up. The gray cardstock is SU from the Neutrals collection and the white is Gina K Designs. I did a quick color with Spectrum Noir Citrus Blend, CT1, 2 and 3, Copic Cool Grays, C1, 2, and 3. My timer showed 1 minutes and 53 seconds left, so that made 8 minutes and 47 seconds used to complete the card. I have someone in mind to send this to, so it was worth the quick creating.

  1. Perfect for the timed and color challenge, Lisa. Love the soft flower image with the touch of yellow.

  2. This is lovely Lisa – I love your modern grey and yellow combo and I think you’ve done a great job against the clock too. Thanks for sharing with us over at As You See It this week!

    1. Thank you! I didn’t realize I was doing something modern. I just colored quickly and did the best I could with this color scheme.

  3. This is very pretty! I like the limited palette you’ve chosen to use. Those little pops of yellow are cheery. Thanks for joining in with our speed challenge at As You See It.

  4. Oh wow, that is a beautiful card. Can’t believe it only took you less than 10 minutes – not an easy feat!!! Great take on the challenge, thank you so much for participating with us over at the Mod Squad!!

    1. Thanks! I had to find an image that I could barely color to meet that time. I used the colors specifically for the Mod Squad.

  5. Lovely clean understated design, Lisa! I’ve always liked gray and yellow together! Thanks for getting your adrenaline flowing with us at As You See It Challenges!
