Quick cards



Spotted Country view Crafts challenge is for cards that take 30 minutes or less, well normally it takes me for ever to make even one card but I do have a favourite way of doing a quick card when called for. Using one of my favourite background techniques, inking with acrylic block, used Salty Ocean,Peacock feathers and Cracked pistachio, spritzed and stamped the block, dried with heatgun stamped Woodware Large Fennel and a freebie Happy Birthday stamp, mounted on a piece of black card and then onto the card blank.Added a few small gems and done.( I had intended maybe adding a small butterfly but by the time I had found a stamp or die would probably gone over the thirty mins.)

Countryview Challenges - Under Thirty Minutes

over at Addicted to stamps the challenge is to make your mark

and at Less is more the challenge is to use Three Adjacent colours
