The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers~~Q is for Quick

The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers has given an awesome challenge for this fortnight, Q is for Quick  and it is to make a 10 minute or less card!!!  I thought for a long time about this one, I rarely make an hour card let alone 10 or less minutes so here is how it went down…on my desk or table was a card base and a strip of a trial piece of Drunken Chalks technique in the perfect size. We were cooking with gas here. Next organize stamps, ink and embossing powder, the heat gun already plugged in. Now here is what I ended up with……
I had pre-cut the pink strips  I had bought the chalk inks and the dragonfly (from PSX) a long, long, long time ago and I think it was to do the Drunken Chalks technique but I put the chalks away in that safe place and of course after a few years it was out of sight out of mind. So glad they surfaced and I got to use them.
The dragonfly stamp is from PSX which is no longer in business, sad as they had awesome stamps. I inked it in versamark watermark and embossed it with detail gold.
I love using the top note sizzix die cuts for my sentiments on the inside of my cards. The sentiment is from Print Works collection.
Since I organized everything ahead of time this took me 9 minutes and 30 seconds, would have been quicker if at the last minute I was scrambling to dig out the pink pearls from the package.
Thanks for spending some time here today and I hope I have inspired you to join the fun challenge Q is for Quick. Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team has made.

WOW, your card is stunning…and under 10 minutes…I am so impressed.
I love the gold embossing and how it pops off of those soft pastel colours.

So many things I agree with! An hour is a *quick* card for me; PSX had great stamps; and definitely you have to have everything organized ahead of starting the clock. ;) This card looks terrific!
