A speedy card

The Speed Craft Challenge has another Anything goes theme this week. 

You have 15 minutes to make something, the good thing is that you can assemble the ingredients first.
On the left are my stamps [Clarity], inks, muslin. button and card stock.

Phew did the time speed around the clock, I am so glad I picked out a coloured paper for a layer.
The distress ink blending looked a bit rushed when I looked at my ??? finished card , so I grabbed a pencil with seconds to spare to give the poor bloke with the umbrella somewhere to stand on.
I think it could have done with another layer and some extra background stamping,
 but  I did manage the stick to the time.
Thank you for stopping by I do so appreciate the comments you leave.

  6. Very clever, I could NEVER make a card in 15 minutes, - well done, this one looks really good and I love that sentiment!

  7. There is a gorgeous energy to this card, as though that man is going to be whipped up into the air by the strong breeze.
    I certainly would never have believed this card had been made in 15 minutes .... a triumph!
    (Thank you so much for all your visits to my blog especially when I haven't been able to visit your own until now)

  8. Your silhouette stamping is fantastic, great to see the tree and umbrella moving in the same direction, you really can feel the strength of the gusts and your sentiment is perfect.

    What fantastic results in under 15 minutes! The time does go very fast but you had your supplies and a clear direction, that is the key.

    Thank you for joining in with us at The Speed Craft Challenge, hope to see you back with us on our next one.

  15. Ah, there he is again - what a great stamp, and quote too. And the inking does a great job of drawing the eye inwards.
