There's only a few hours left to submit your entry for the current 10-Minute Craft Dash Challenge. I created my card several days ago but went over my time by more than 3 minutes. I planned to try again but the time just got away from me this week.
I wanted to share my card anyway, even though it was a 10 minute fail. I really love how it turned out. I was pretty ambitious when I started this card, I should have known that adding the acrylic paints would eat up my time. They actually dried really quickly, I think I just had so much going on with this card, that everything together was a little much for 10 minutes.
To create this card I stared with a standard white A2 card base. I cut a piece of Mixed Media paper slightly smaller at 5.25in. X 4in. to layer on top of the card base. A heavy weight cardstock would probably work just as well, but I knew that I would be using acrylic paint & spray mist ink and I didn't want my paper to warp too much. The mixed media paper is much more tolerant of layers of liquid mediums.
I applied a thin layer of turquoise acrylic paint, used my heat gun to dry it quickly, and then applied green acrylic paint using a sponge & circle stencil. I dried that and then added splatters of red spray mist ink. I set that aside and then stamped the label image using red ink, stamped the sentiment using black ink, and then cut it out. I punched a snowflake from white cardstock and applied a red rhinestone to the center of it.
I then took my heat gun to finish drying the spray mist. I used white acrylic paint and a snowflake stamp and stamped randomly over the painted layer. After heat setting it, I adhered the sentiment label using foam tape, and adhered the flare badge.
I stopped looking at my timer at the 13 minute 29 second mark, so I'm not exactly sure how long this card actually took to create, but I'm going to guess it was closer to 16 minutes... which still isn't that bad for a custom designed paper right? LOL
Thanks for stopping by today!
