I had the retrosketch #54 in mind and pulled out a couple of Distress Inks and cardstock, stamps and washi tape and set the stop watch to see if I could pull this off.
In real life the greens are a closer match, but doubling up the washi tape did make a more intense shade.
The "phone home" idea came from the CASology Cue Card: Extraterrestrial - ET was the first thing that came to my mind and I love any excuse to use one of the Mini Blueprint stamps.
Cath at Moxie Fab World has issued a number of challenges to celebrate Card Creations Week, including the Washi Tape Challenge. The ribbon on this card is made by taking a long strip on washi tape and folding the sticky sides in on itself.
The result is almost a waxy feeling ribbon that I tied into a bow.
The final time for this one was just under 9 minutes and most of that time was fishing for letters to stamp the sentiment and folding the washi tape!
I'll be back later with a "way more than 10 minutes" card that I am taking a break from.
Thanks for stopping by,
