Tami from Hero Arts has organised a series of speedy card making challenges over at the HA Flickr group.
I had missed a few of these challenges but on Thursday finally got to take part in the great challenge hosted by Karen (froggietalks on Flickr). Karen's challenge was to use kraft, red and black on a card and the card had to be made and uploaded to the group in 90 minutes. The saying "more haste, less speed" is so true and I fumbled with everything - please don't look too closely at my wonky cutting! The card took about 30 minutes to make and it took nearly as long again to get an awful photograph outside at dusk (yuck colours inside from energy saving light bulbs). So I took this photo of it during the day.
Stamps (Hero Arts) - Antique Engravings, Silhouette Grass & Messages
I hadn't got kraft card so ended up using some kraft coloured fabric. I clear embossed it with the Grass Silhouette stamp and cut it with the Labels 8 die. The butterflies are coloured with Promarkers and I added beads to the bodies and thread for the antennae.
These 90 minute scrambles are so much fun to take part in. So far two more have been organised, one on 23rd October and another one on 6th November. Full details are here . I'd highly recommend taking part in them!
Now on to the winners of the little giveaways. Thank you all for taking part and for your lovely comments. I really wish I had something to send to everyone. I picked the winners the old fashioned way by drawing the names out of a hat.
So this is going to to Linda (scrappin.bari)
and this is going to Dawn
Linda and Dawn, I hope you'll enjoy these and I'll email you for your addresses.
