I didn't think I'd ever participate in the 10 Minute Craft Dash! I'm too particular, indecisive and well, anal! Yup, I fuss and fuss to get every last detail perfect. Trying to get a card completed in 10 minutes seemed like a daunting task! After watching Dawn's video though, I picked up a few tricks that made the task seem almost doable! The thing that stuck with me most was...stick to stamping & stay away from die cuts...got it!
This was the challenge:
Pink, Green, Gray...my first thought was baby. So I shuffled through my stamps until I came across Heartfelt Mix. Perfect! I grabbed my ink pads, and some white cardstock and got busy.
I started at 8:03 and would have finished at 8:10, but that is the exact minute that I dropped my top layer right on my Certainly Celery ink pad...gasp! I always close my inks after I'm done with each color, but to save time I left them all open. It took about 3 more minutes to play with my bakers twine so I could strategically cover up my ink splotch. All in all, it was a success. A fun challenge that I might take on again. Next time I'll remember to close my ink pads!
