Challenge #212 - I Want You to Colour Me Blue - Quickly

The greatly anticipated (or dreaded, depending on your risk assessment) Speed Stamping Challenge is here again! This time we're asking you to create in shades of Blue! When we do a speed challenge we are not expecting a detailed masterpiece from you. We want you to have fun and see what you can create in under 10 minutes!  "WHAT?!" you exclaim,"That's impossible!" Well, it isn't, as our design team will show you, but you can design it in your head or sketch it out first. You can gather all your supplies ahead of time. But once you start the cutting/stamping/die cutting/embossing/etc. process, you must start the timer! You have 10 minutes! Let us know, with your entry, how long it took you to complete your card or project! The key is to KISS!! Keep It Simple, Stamper!

Also, you can use any shades of Blue, plus other neutrals but no other colours!

How did the Design Team colour it blue in under 10? Let's see:

Amy Jasper 8m10s

Heather Cooper 6m47s 

Jan Clothier 7m18s

Joanne James 9m24s

Here are some guidelines for the challenge:

  • Create any card, scrapbooking page, 3D project or packaging   project that fits the challenge.
  • You can come up with your design and gather materials before you start the clock, but once you start work, you have to complete your design in 10 min. State in your blog or description, how long it took you to make it.
  • Use only shades of blue and other neutrals in your project.
  • Please include the challenge graphic and link back to the   challenge in your blog post. Turn off word verification so we   can send you lots of feedback. Make sure you link the post not the whole blog to the Linky. Use #AYSI212 when uploading to a public gallery.
  • If you’re unsure about ‘the rules’, check the details under the Challenge Guidelines.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. Greatly anticipated here! I don't know why but I LOVE creating something really quickly! I must add that I am a very careful driver in case anyone is worried ;)

  2. This is always a fun challenge for me!! This first card I started ending up taking longer than 10 so I had to create another one...kept it one layer with no cutting and that worked lots better!! Thanks for the inspiration!!
