Quick and Simple Card Set

Today's Try a New Technique Challenge on SCS was to create Speedy Cards for Good Causes. Basically it's to make cards that are quick and easy to produce in bulk, or by themselves in about 5 or 10 minutes. The challenge specifically looked at the Need a Lift Forum on SCS and encouraged people to make quick, easy cards with the MOST IMPORTANT thing being to GET THEM IN THE MAIL. I can totally appreciate that. I always think "oh I should send a card to so and so", then the days keep passing by because I haven't created "my masterpiece" and the card never gets sent. The challenge encourages you to just send a card. . .it's the thought that counts, not how many embellishments or techniques you used. So, I made this VERY quick card set with my MissyB Designs You're Bugging Me stamp set. I just LOVE all of the images and they are very simple and quick to color. The most involved part of it was adding the shading in the background. Stardust Stickles adds the perfect sparkle to the wings. I think I made this whole card set in about 10 minutes. I think I'll make up a few of these for gifts! I'm so glad I took a look at the challenge today! :) SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Missy B Designs, You're Bugging Me; Ink- Palette in Noir, Bordering Blue, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Lovely Lilac, Summer Sun; Paper- Watercolor paper; Accessories- Aquapainter, Stardust Stickles, Doodliedoo polka dot organdy ribbon.

Lovely Charmaine! And one of the best features is that there are so many bug images that you could keep making them for a while without duplicating any!
