24 hour scramble!!
On Friday and Saturday one of our Hero Arts Flickr group members Hannah organised a special challenge! A whole 24hours of scramble challenges. I think I have mentioned these before, we are given 90 minutes to make a card using a specific theme. Usually I find it difficult to enter these as most of the hostesses live in the USA and so timing is an issue, but with it spanning 24 hours I was able to have a go at three of the challenges set.
The first challenge was number 7 set by Linda and was to use the same stamp in the foreground and background of your card. I made this card using the "Etched Flower" cling, first stamping in Faded Jeans ink and making a mask so that I could repeat stamp in Broken China.
Challenge 8 was set by Cat and was to make a shaped card using no white at all, unfortunately in my haste I overlooked the shaped card bit and made this card in black and silver. After seeing the other creations I quickly found time to make another entry.
Challenge 9 was set by Lucille and was to make a card incorporating an animal or bird that is coloured in an unusual colour. I only had a little time for this one as I had the tea to cook so I quickly paper pieced the little deer, stamped the trees and added some glitter.
I really had fun with these, its so good to challenge yourself especially when its out of your comfort zone.
