A 25 Minute Card - Oh Yeah!

Good Morning and happy Friday. I'm really happy to be sharing my second 30 minute project for Country View Crafts, and this one took me 25 minutes (oh no it didn't - oh yes it did!!)

However, as I 'owe' 5 minutes from my last card, I guess that makes us all square.

PaperArtsy recently had an alcohol ink challenge on their blog and I learned this technique there. In the example canned air was used, but I simply take a few drops of alcohol ink, a drinking straw, and blow... a lot!

Next I added some stamping with JOFY 14, JOFY 09, and ELB 06, and filled the images in a little bit with Prisma pens.

Then a bit of matting, layering and stitching to hold it all together and we're done with 5 minutes left to spare - ta dah!

So 30 minutes or less is all I'm asking for you to join in with our challenge - you can get the supplies ready and tidy up again in your own time lol.

Have a fabulous weekend, and thanks very much for looking x


  1. Lovely card, great blow-job! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Such a great technique and card Sue. Happy Friday xxx

  3. Hecky Thump. I am trying to think how long this would take me to make.It is stunning Sue. Think I may try something this style but it will take me 30 minutes to test which of my alcohol inks still have any left in them.

    What a great challenge

    Love Chrissie xx

  4. Wow, Sue!!! This is amazing!!! Great technique!!! xxx

  5. Love this. I want to say very graphic, cos someone left that comment on one of my cards a little while ago and I wasn't exactly sure if it was a compliment or not, or something you say when you aren't really sure what to say, but be assured, in this instance it is. Colours and lines. Graphic. Nice. I am a slow card maker but I hope to join your 30 minutes or less and produce a few wonders. Probably the biggest wonder will be 'I wonder how I made that in under 30 minutes!!' Oh sweetheart, thank you. You got my little ol' blog in your sidebar. I am honored. Just clicked follow. Don't know why I haven't done that before. I have been bumping into your gorgeous creations for years around blogland. Have a lovely day. Hugz

  10. Great card, just very beautiful, and I'm impressed by the result regarding the time you say have spent on this one!!! :) Hugs xx

  11. I had forgotten all about this technique using alcohol inks, Sue, and I do like it a lot. Guess I will have to "unbury" my alcohol inks! I like the idea of stamping over it and then using pen for the final touches. Your card is so pretty that I will definitely try it!

  12. Fabulous card and great technique! The JOFY stamps fit perfectly! Chrisx

  13. Love this and all in 25 mins - the 30 min challenge really was a challenge for me but had I did have fun xx
