April elements

It's the first Friday of another new month and Kathy is setting our "elemental" challenge over at Daring Cardmakers - just choose at least three elements from the inspiration picture to kickstart your project.

I chose the colours, an embossed white feather, overlapping rectangles of different sizes, gold accents (some metal dots, some doodled gel pen) and a white script style sentiment.

The smaller rectangles are made with an acrylic block tapped onto a blue ink pad and spritzed with water before pressing it onto the card base.

My Island (mine is the original Waltzingmouse Stamps set, the same is now available from Gina K)
Happy Stamp & Cut by Hero Arts (die cut sentiment as well)

Bristol board

Shadow Ink by Hero Arts (Mint Julep)
Tim Holtz Distress ink by Ranger (Chipped Sapphire)

Tom Holtz/Sizzix Feather duo die/folder
Circles punched from tomato paste tube metal
Gold gel pen
Pinflair glue gel
Corner Chomper

Here's the inspiration picture - we'd love to have you play along!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful card using the inspiration board, Joanne! I love the colors and really love the feather. What a great layout too to mimic the inspiration board. Beautifully done! Hugs!

Love your overlapping background on this Joanne - it's very clever and the use of the feather really sets it off. Shabneez x
