Time Challenge

It's a new month and a new theme at Country View Crafts Challenges and you're being challenged to make something in under 30 minutes! I seem to waste ages pottering about in my studio finding just the right stamp, stencil or paint colour so for this challenge I limited myself to what was at hand - good job I've not tidied up for ages!

I started by adding White Fire Fresco Paint to my page in my small journal and then a thin line of Matte Glaze at the top. I sprinkled a little Black Knight Infusions over the top. Taking an old credit card I scraped the mixture down the page creating a grungy look.
To finish the background I lightly stencilled some leaves using some Slate Fresco paint and some Cut and Dry foam. Can you see the cool details of the background from the Infusions?!
Then I added a few stamps in the background. The chap was stamped on some book paper and I coloured him in. When I'd stuck him down I stamped the bird on his head and then again on some more book paper. A few lines of gold paint and it was done - 27 minutes from start to finish!
Thank you for joining me today and I hope you check out the amazing art from my team mates and feel inspired to enter the challenge!
