Muse #25 + Summer Card Camp 2: Week 1 Day 4

The Muse Challenge Card this week is from Therese Calvird and absolutey delightful.



I love her blue flamingo, but went in a different direction with my card. All my flamingos are pink, with one a darker, more vibrant color. To make her stand out even more, I coated her with a layer of stickles.




I am really enjoying Summer Card Camp 2. Today Kristine Werner issued a 10 Minute Card Challenge. I usually take more than 10 minutes to decide on stamps or dies and then go onto ink and paper - we haven't even taked about design yet LOL. Thankfully, the rules allowed us to gather our supplies before starting the timer and I used one of the sketches we were given use this week.




Jennifer Rzasa is one of the Guest Artists today and I absolutely fell in love with her overlapping die cuts. I spent way too long working on another card - you won't see it, because it is only half done and I wasn't even finished die cutting when my 10 minutes were up, but working on it helped me practice the technique.




I wanted my overlapping "2-4-6-8" to be flat on the panel, so nestled the pieces together and attached a piece of washi to hold them in place. I could easily & quickly flip the whole set of numbers over and add my glue. It was also quick & easy to place them on the embossed panel with everything staying tight together.




As you can see, I completed the challenge with a few seconds to spare!




There is no question, the time limit forced me to make a design plan AND stick to it, which is probably a good thing.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie
