ANYHOO - I took a few minutes (literally!) for myself last night, and put something together for the latest 10 Minute Craft Dash. I have to say, I really do LOVE this challenge, because so many times I will start a project, and not have ANY idea where I'm going with it -- and then it takes FOREVER -- well, when you are doing the 10 minute craft dash, you don't have TIME for that, so you need a plan. Even at that, things don't always go as planned (like my last entry - I had issues with the size of the focal panel, so having to trim it cost me valuable time, and put me over) but more often than not, if you have a plan, you're good.
Keep your idea realistic, even the most simple of designs can be time consuming.
Here is the challenge graphic:
I totally LOVE these colors, by the way!
Here's my card:
Is it my favorite card ever? no. But -I think it is clean and simple, it's got a great pop of color. The dimensionals I used were TOO big, in my opinion, popped a little too far off the page. Also, I had to hand cut the triangles, because the dies were out of stock, and I think that would have made a big difference, too. I like the texture of the sketched images on the triangles, and I think I might definitely try this again once I can get my hands on those dies, I might be more pleased with the outcome. BUT --Overall, still happy with it, quirks and all.
Best of all -- I made time :)
If you haven't already checked out the challenge, you should give it a shot -- it's a ton of fun! Thanks for stopping by!!
