Hello and welcome to February, the month of love and time for our next challenge over at Country View. I spotted this display up in London recently..such gorgeous heart boxes...ready to fill....
Our theme this time is a timed challenge. The brief is to make a project in 30 minutes or under. For this I decided to make a card. I could never make an art journal page in that sort of time! I think a lot of time is spent on design so I will confess that I already had a plan but in minutes to make it really did take less than 30 minutes. There are no limitations to the number of other challenges or the number times you can enter. You have the chance to win a £20 voucher too so it's win win in my books! All the details can be seen here.
So this is what I got up to. We all have a bag of inky left over snippets in our stash don't we? Us crafters never throw anything away.
I found these old paper doilies in a drawer I was clearing out after Christmas
Time taken; 9 minutes
Total time = 25 minutes.....so 5 minutes to spare!
So using scraps is a really quick way of putting a card together...and remember never throw away those rejected backgrounds. There will always be a day that you can put it to use 😊
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
Darnell's NBUS challenge #10
NBUS stands for never used stuff...of which I have plenty. My never before use for this project was my paper doilies which had been sitting in a drawer for probably 15 years...yes seriously!!
