Grungy Monday Challenge: Tim in Ten
I'm not known for doing my projects fast - I debate too much - maybe this would look better here, maybe this image is better than that one, and on and on. I thought Linda's Grungy Monday challenge this week would be fun and a true challenge for me - create a card in 10 min. Well I made two, cheated just a bit ;-), and finished in 11 min. First my confession - the images were already cut out and left as scraps on my table and the note cards were also already done, and I pulled together and set up all my needed supplies, but everything else fit into the challenge parameters. I wanted to play with my Texture Trades (ATC sized embossing folders) so I quickly created a wrinkle free distress background on 2 ATC's using Victorian Velvet and Dried Marigold, then stamped directly onto the embossing folder with Coffee Archival using reflections stamps and embossed the ATC's. I highlighted the embossed areas with Vintage Photo DI, and then simply added my image, a scrap of gaffer tape, edged the top and bottom with a krylon pen and added the ATC to my card base on top of a scrap of dictionary text.
