15 Minute Challenge


When I visited Catherine last week, we challenged ourselves to make a card that used masking and sponging in 15 minutes.   That's my finished card above.  When I do challenges like this I usually use a layout I've done before, something I know works.  I've used this idea before, both the layout and sponging many times, so I knew it had to work for the challenge!  Any time you are at a loss for new ideas or if you are low on time, I encourage you to do the same.

Catherine is posting her card today too.  You have to head over to her blog to check it out.  She gave her image a double stenciled look, maybe she even invented a new technique?  It's new to me anyway.

We left the cameras rolling through the 15 minute challenge, you can view the video here on Catherine's blog.  I haven't seen it yet, but I bet it's good for a few laughs.  We were stressing a bit.  At the end I'm looking for a stamp for the bottom of my card.  I was wishing I had brought my WPlus9 Country Charm set, but no luck.  Catherine trimmed that little piece for me, I was low on time and that had to do :)

Here are some pics from the visit...
