10 Minute Craft Dash



Hi guys, today I'm participating in the birthday bash for the 10 Minute Craft Dash! I should tell you that there's a crazy mad dash every month to get through my projects for our release. So much to do, and so little time! I'm sure you can all relate. So, yeah, I am happy and honored to participate today. 

10 minutes? Not a problem. I knew exactly what I wanted to do (for once)! I love balloons and there is nothing more festive than balloons! So, I grabbed Good Times and our newest stamp set, Hustle for the sentiment. 

Here are my supplies laid out...


I stamped the balloons and freely overlapped them since balloons are transparent anyway. No tedious masking needed here! The balloon strings were drawn on with a clear, silvery gel pen with the help of a t-ruler to help keep them straight and aligned. I also used a white gel pen to color in some white reflections on the balloons. 

And all done in 7 minutes, 45.1 seconds! Yeah!!!




Here's the finished card! 



The next stop is Caryn Davies, off you go!
