If you read the post title and have followed the Pretty Pink Posh blog for a while, I’m sure you are super excited. For this special challenge blog hop, I am bringing back the popular 10 Minute Craft Dash and honestly, I couldn’t be more excited. This challenge is where I challenged crafters to create something within a 10 minute time frame. I really wanted to encourage crafters that they didn’t need to set aside a whole day, or several hours, to create something.
The super sweet Nina-Marie has created a post, along with a coordinating video, for today’s post. Let’s check out what she made…
Nina-Marie here with you today sharing a fun project -and challenge- with you today! This post is in collaboration with Altenew’s Ultimate Craft challenge and here at Pretty Pink Posh, we are featuring a fun 10 Minute Craft Dash.
I’ll be using a combination of Pretty Pink Posh and Altenew products; the Floral Shadow stamp set and Thanks die (from Altenew), along with the Birdie Friends stamp set, Scallop Borders die set and 3mm Sparkling Clear and mix sequins (all from Pretty Pink Posh).
In this challenge, you are required to make a card or project in 10 minutes or less! When I got the assignment topic for this post I knew this would be fun, but also REALLY challenging for me because I usually make cards that are pretty involved in the coloring process. I knew immediately that coloring of any length would be out of the question because it takes me MUCH longer than 10 minutes to color something in! Haha!
Another thing I do not do when I am making a card is actually PLAN; I like to create as I go along. I sometimes have a general idea with the direction of a card when I start out, but nothing real definitive. But for this, I knew I needed a solid plan to stick to because of the limited amount of time I had to work with. This layout for my card was super easy to put together, but at the same time, shows off the gorgeous floral pattern in the background perfectly!
Speaking of the background; I wanted to color SOMETHING in this card, but because of the 10 minute time frame, I knew it was going to have to be a fast technique. In this video, I’ll be sharing how I created this beautiful watercolor background in less than 4 minutes!
Be sure you check out the video below to see that, along with how I created the entire card in a total of 9 minutes and 42 seconds!
