Today’s card is for Lynn’s 10 Min. Challenge #2 (10MC2), using a reverse mask to create the focal point.
Yes, I will admit, I did know a head of time what Lynn’s challenge was going to be and was excited to try this technique … BUT, I forced it out of my mind and purposely did not stamp anything for this KSS morning. I wanted to put myself to the test. I did not use a timer for this stamping “dash”. I used the human clock of my DH walking the kids to school. LOL! We live about two blocks away from our neighborhood school. SO, out the door they all went, and into the stamp room I raced… GO!
I will admit that my DH was just opening the door returning from school, as I put the finishing touches on the champagne with Star Dust Stickles…so, this card may have taken maybe 12 to 15 mins… so easy to lose track of time when stamping (isn’t it?). Next time I will have to use a timer! 🙂
What took the longest? Which shape for my focal point. 😉
This card was created using one of the 3 new stamp sets released on Jan 1st, called Multi Step Champagne Celebration.
Please remember to check what the rest of the KS Crew has cooked up for you this KSS Monday.
