Speedcraft Challenge - Animals

It's time again for another 15 mins of fun by joining in with us at Speedcraft Challenge this fortnight.
This fortnights challenge has been chosen my by Amazin' teamie Donna and Donna has chosen 
Our Challenge rules are:-
You can make any type of project but your project must be completed in 15 mins, you must include in your entry how long it took you to make it, this makes you eligible to go into the draw for our challenge prize. Further details of our rules can be found on our sidebar.
 This challenge has been sponsored by 
and one selected winner will have their choice of 3 digi images.
So with my timer set and all my supplies gathered together,  I began.

and 14 mins and 18 seconds later 

As you can see from my supplies above I went for a gelli print card.
The creating of this required 3 pulls from the gelli plate 2 on this one, the second being a ghost print.
1st print was the light yellow colour 
2nd applied the blue and then laid the stencil of the birds which I cut from acetate from Sizzix Birds on a wire decorative strip and add some texture with bubble wrap. I then took a print on a separate piece of card which left me the ghost print on the gelli plate.
3rd pull was then to pull what was left on my gelli plate to my 1st background gelli print.
The joy of the gelli plate is that as you are only adding a thin layer of paint it dries really quickly.
I then added the red dots through Tim Holtz Dot Fade stencil and the lines using an old credit card.
It was then mat and layered onto card I had already cut to size before I started.
A Tim Holtz ChitChat sticker finishes it off and all under 15 mins (just!)
Not part of the challenge but to show what I did with the 2nd print, the one used to create the ghost print I needed, I made this

This only had the blue on so I added colours to the white spaces using pastel colours of aquatints, and stamped my sentiment.
So we would love it if you popped over Here and join in with us this fortnight, there is some fabulous  inspiration for you from the design team.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by

  2. Liking both your cards very much Amanda, Gelli plate backgrounds are fantastic and loads of fun and as you say so quick to dry, perfect for our challenge! The thing i am loving is that your cards are flat but have so much depth to them, awesome projects and in under the 15 minutes. How fantastic to be able to create something so wonderful in under the time :-) xxx

  3. Lovely results in such a short period of time Amanda!
    greetings, Alie :-)

  4. Two awesome cards, loved your 15 minute one.

  5. Brilliant idea! Love them both so much! Xx

  6. I love both of them - but the little blue birds in the first one are my favourites, I think. Great printing - would love to come and play Gelli some time and learn the ropes...
