Speedy Card Challenge!!


Today's Technique Lover's Challenge on SCS was to do a speedy card!! They were aiming for 10 minutes or less, but 25 minutes is quick for me!! I usually spend about an hour on a card, so this was a HUGE challenge for moi!!

So I grabbed a Pink Cat Studio image that I already had stamped to begin with. Here's something I do....when I am using my unmounted or acrylic stamps, I usually stamp up a few of whatever image I'm working with. I find unmounteds and acrylics take up extra time, so while I've already got it all inked up, I figure I might as well stamp up a few!! Sooooooo, I had one all ready to go. Then I just grabbed some scrap patterned paper (off of my GIGANTIC pile 'o leftovers which takes up about a third of my table) and got buzy!!! (Love that spelling!)

I coloured my image with SU markers in colours that coordinated with my Tres Jolie patterned paper. I grabbed Certainly Celery for the base of the card and the Apricot Appeal for the matting and I used my ticket corner punch on each layer. Then I used the backside of the pp to mat the main image. I used my Clear Sakura Stardust gel pen on Kittie's flower and scarf and pop dotted the main image!! Then I picked out a couple of my new Prima Sprites and used a clear round rhinestone brad!! It really only took me about 20-25 minutes which is totally quick for me!!

I did try a couple of even quicker ones, and maybe I'll post them tomorrow!

Oh and I made a quick little trip over to Michael's and found some NEW $ stamps....but I'll show you them tomorrow!!!

This is just so cute. You need to do a tutorial on coloring with the markers. I can never get my colors to look this good...mine are all glaring and streaky...how do you do it?

Love this image! (and card)
