The other day as I was going around to my favorite blogs that I love to follow and I came across this new challenge site called 10 Minute Craft Dash.
As I was looking at the DT’s wonderful examples, I thought there is no way this girl can make a card in 10 minutes…10 hours yes….but not 10 minutes! LOL….
Well, all week I have been going back an revisiting this site and figured…how you going to know unless you try. So try I did!
I DID IT!!!
9 minutes and 46 seconds!
I would have to say that having a timer sitting next to you is a little nerve racking, and I hope I didn’t cheat because I had everything laid out ready to go ahead of time.
I don’t think I would call this a complete success, as I am not sure yet what I think of the card. Yes, I made it in under 10 minutes but, not with out some major bumps along the way.
The sentiment got rocked and has a shadow,(hate that) the chalk was suppose to just go on the embossed image and not on the background but, that didn’t work so well.
So at the last minute I decided to chalk up the background very lightly to cover my mistakes.
I was going for a softer feel!
So what do you think?
Sometimes I look at it and think it’s kinda cool and then other times I think it looks like a card I made in 10 minutes.
I must say though…it was fun using my chalks again!
I forgot how much I enjoy that art medium.
You can’t tell in the photo, but I also used my scor-pal
and put a dividing line between the image and the sentiment.
I am also linking this card up to the Paper Players…One Layer Challenge!
I think I have only made a total of 3 One layer cards before….it is a big challenge for me!
Now, have I inspired you to see if you can meet either of these challenges?
Thanks for stopping in!
