Grungy Monday: Tim in 10

Hi bloggies,

It's monday and that means Grungy Monday from Studio L3! Today's theme is Tim in 10, which means a time challenge. There was no theme this time, as long as the card is made within 10 minutes time and has one or more of Tim Holtz products on it. This challenge sounds like a lot of fun!
Because time is an issue with this challenge I can't do everything. I was already thinking of using embossing powder, or Stickles or crackle paint. But that takes to long. So I thought of something else. Last week I bought very cool halloween graphics from Lettering Delights that you can print out with your printer. Printing an images takes no time at all, because while the printer is busy, I can do something else. I also wanted to do something  with a diecut. That's also fast to make. After I had a clear picture in my head of what I wanted to make and had done al of the preparation, I was ready to start the time challenge. (Because I printed the background and make the diecut of the witch and bat the time on the timer is 8:16)

I started with the background of the card with Gathered Twiggs and then the background of thelayer and used Ripe Persimmon Seedless Preserves on it. Then the moon with Musterd Seed and the witch I made a little more black with Black Soot.

The bat is attached to the card with 3d foam, for a little dimension. Then I glued the moon in the middle. After that I attached the lace on to the card with tape. The chain was too long, so I'd to shorten it. That cost a lot of time.
The chain is attached with brads. When the whole layer had to be glued down on the card, I had to use glossy accents this time. Because the brads and the chain are so thick I couldn't use my tape roller.

Then I attached the charms to the lace. The witch is attached with 3D foam. The last thing I did was sprinkling some water over the card, and dabbing it of with a cloth.


I just managed to do it within 10 minutes. But that was mainly because of all the preparation. Otherwise it would never have succeeded! Oh, and each time I made a picture, I stopped the timer of course!

Although I was a bit rushed, I had so much fun doing it.
Hopefully you like the result!

great card just shows what you can acheive with good preparation. It would probably have taken even less time if you hadn't taken so many pictures, but it was interesting to see it coming together
