The reason that this is so challenging for me is that I have a bit of an aversion to making cards as I never really seem to get them quite right, and also, I'm not very good at planning my art, it kind of evolves from a chaos of inkpads, stamps, and two extremely helpful fluffy feline advisors if I'm lucky. But I sat and thought, finally had an idea, gathered some stuff, and banished the cats from my art room/spare bedroom.
I used a black card, a manilla tag, Ripe Persimmon, Seedless Preserves, and Gathered Twigs DI's, my favorite swirly Tim stamp, some Ideology Salvage stickers and a couple of embellishments to make my card, so having set the stopwatch here is what I came up with.
Actually I wonder if I should set myself time limits sometimes, I just squeaked in at 9 minutes and 48 seconds, though what you can't see is that its not really stuck down very well! I love those new seasonal Distress Ink colours, and mine only popped through the letterbox yesterday so it was great to use them this morning.
Now I'm off to have a look at some of the lovely artwork over at Grungy Monday.
