Ten Minute Card

Hi everyone, before I show you my card I'd like to welcome my newest followers, it's lovely to have you join me.

Chrissie from Jumbled Crafts  put a link in one of her posts for the The Speed Craft Challenge. You are given a theme and you have to make something in ten minutes or under, for the latest challenge the theme is Ink Sprays or Spritzers so I thought I'd have a go.

To save time I got all my supplies ready.
Then I put the timer on. I sprayed the inks onto my craft mat with some water and smooshed a piece of card through it and dried it with a heat gun, then I stamped the images with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I just managed to adhere it to a card blank when the timer went. The thing that took the longest was having to use the heat gun to dry the card and do the embossing.

This is the result after ten minutes.

After the time was up I added some ribbon, punched snowflakes [Martha Stewart] and pearls.

I think I prefer it with out the snowflakes.
