10 Minute or Less Challenge #119-A Sketch

It's Friday and that means it is time for the "10 Minutes or Less" Challenge over on Carole'Anne's Blog.  This week we were given a sketch.  I decided to pair it up with the pretty colour combo over at Stacey's Curtain Call Colour Challenge which was to use Crushed Curry, Going Gray, Basic Gray and White.  Once again I inked up my new "Elements of Style" Set.  I stamped the main flowers in Mustard and then inked up the swirly stamp in Going Gray, stamping over top of the yellow flowers.  The entire front panel was then put through the Big Shot with the Texturz Plates to add some detail.  I cut out the Hummingbird and popped it up on a dimensional.  I worked fast and had all my supplies and pieces on the table ready to go before I started.  I still didn't make it in 10 minutes but I was quicker this week!  I was in the 20 minute realm!!!
Please stop by the "10 Minutes or Less" Challenge Blog and be sure to play along this week.  I am looking forward to seeing your creations.

  12. Hi Lesley, Your card looks great! Very pretty even if you "only" spent 10 min. on it. I still have to get the time in check. 10 min. just goes too fast. Mitzi Luttrull

  13. this is stunning Lesley! I love the branch in the background that creeps onto the square with the birdie!!! thanks for playing along with us again this week! :)

  14. You have created a beautiful Card here. I love the color combo. I really struggle with color combo's and it seems like it is so easy for some people. I wonder what the catch is to figuring it out? I love the Basic Grey Scalloped Border that you used near the top of the card. I think that it really makes the whole thing "pop". Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful weekend, whatever you decide to do.

  15. Gorgeous combo, Lesley! Love the way you treated the elements of style and the hummer at the bottom of the page is just perfect.
