Hello! Thank you for visiting me, I am so grateful! I think some of you got the wrong idea from my last post. I said it was a really quick post as I was hurrying for a challenge deadline which was true, but it was just the writing of the post not the actual making of the card that was fast! Sorry if I wasn't clear!
This card however was speed crafting! One of the challenges I am entering involves speed stamping and after planning my card and getting everything I needed ready, it took me just a few seconds under ten minutes! I got carried away with the splattering and almost went over the time! Very close!
Its a one layer card so I worked directly on the card base.. I used a circle stencil and inked through it with Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint Distress Oxides for an autumnal pallet then spritzed with water to give some texture and activate the lovely chalky look of the ink. The ink was quickly dried with my heat tool and I stamped, using my Misti and Black Versafine, the gorgeous flower and sentiment from Originally Organic by Uniko - I won this fabulous set along with the matching dies, thank you so much Bev at Uniko! Notice my sentiment is straight - that is because my fabby friend Di very kindly sent me a couple of acetate grids to use in my Misti for straight sentiments and spacing etc. - so awesome! Thank you Di!
There are some black spots in the image so I added some extra ones on the card to continue the theme using a black fine liner and also the faux stitching round the edge of the circle then used Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen on the image for some sparkle. Finally, using the same inks mixed with water, I added the splatters - I think I got a bit carried away! A few seconds under ten minutes and all done! I think I will make some more like this as I really like the look! CAS and quick too!
