90 Minute Scramble!!

Yesterday evening the Hero Arts Flickr group ran another 90 minute scramble challenge.  These are always fun but as its usually Saturday evening for me I am not always able to take part.  Well yesterday we had nothing on so I was keen to Scramble!!

Karen set the challenge this week and it was to stamp onto patterned paper,  straight away I had lots of ideas in my head but none seemed to work, my desk got messier and messier and my mind went blank.  I then found my new Etched Flower stamp from Hero Arts and stamped it in black onto some Basic Grey paper after cutting out the image I was pleased with the result so just the background to make.
I had just finished making this card with the masked background so decided to do it again.  I masked with low tac masking tape (I have found that its still quite sticky so rub the tape over my jeans to take off even more stickiness) Stamped the Old Letter Writing stamp with Old Paper distress ink and then distressed with the same ink. You then have to carefully remove the tape. Just added the flowers, some pearls and a sentiment and hey presto finished within the 90 mins.  Great Fun!! just a huge mess to clear up LOL.

Hope you are having a great Sunday.


P.S. Be sure to drop by my blog on Wednesday as there is something very exciting happening!!

Hi Sally

Happy New Year to you too - hope you had a nice Xmas.

Love your card and your masked off stamped background gorgeous! I'm glad I'm not the only one who sometimes struggles with what to make (and to think we have soooo much crafting bits around us...)

Take care and must remember to pop back Wednesday to find out whats happening!

I've had a hard time with that particular pattern paper, so I must try to remember to use it for piecing like that - brilliant :) ANd the masking is lovely on this card too, with the pop of pearls.
Again with the teasing about big're killing me! I must have been a cat in my last life ;)

Beautiful. Sally! I don't do crafts on the weekends, as they are for time with hubby, but I love to see the results of the scrambles. I love the paper piecing on this - something I don't always remember to try. Thanks for visiting my blog, too!
