When your heart speaks...

Hello everyone,

and Happy Wednesday to you. There is a new challenge up on the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog and this week it is the lovely Sue who decided that it is going to be a Time Challenge. This is what she had to say about it:

'We can sometimes get caught up in making big production pieces. My challenge this week is to make something in 30 minutes or less (not including time taken to gather your supplies). I look forward to seeing what you create'. 

And, boy is she right... I can spend a whole day on one project. So this was quite a challenge for me but in the end I made a card in just under 15 minutes and this is it:

I really enjoyed making this quick and easy project. I cut a piece of watercolour paper to size; slightly smaller than the card. Next I stamped the heart and the sentiment using black Archival ink. 
I used my INKtense pencils and a water brush to colour everything. I dried it with my heat tool, glued it onto the card and that was it.... 

I used two Stampotique stamps for this card:

Why not play along with us this week and you might just win one of two $30 vouchers at the end of the month. Just remember: NO digi's and only one entry per person per challenge. Have fun !!! 

Thanks for stopping by today !

  5. Very quick and effective, great example for this weeks challenge. x

  6. This is gorgeous. CAS is definitely the way to go with that lovely heart and sentiment.

  7. This is so striking, absolutely love this card so much.
    Have to say that I always struggled with quick cards but now I like the challenge!

  8. Fabulous card, love how you have highlighted the heart. Bad news for me - I NEED that stamp :)

  9. This is really beautiful, love this sentiment xx

  10. Love that France P sentiment, and your heart looks stunning - beautiful vivid red and the delicate blue shading to add depth - beautifully (and quickly!) done.
