July elemental

Enfys has chosen the inspiration for the first challenge of July over at Daring Cardmakers which is our usual "elemental" dare. Just choose at least three elements from the inspiration picture as the basis of your project.

I chose the colour scheme, the black and white stripes of one of the vases and the eggs.

A hand-drawn wonky square coloured with Copic markers and bordered with a fineliner combined with a stamped image and some glitter card shapes.

This started off as a much more clean and simple design but I mis-stamped some chicken footprints under the sentiment and ended up using the "embesllishment opportunity" to add stars rather than start again! I'm not quite sure about the result but maybe it will grow on me!

Stamps:
Farm Chicks (Craft Secrets, no longer with us)

Paper:
Bristol board 
Glitter paper (local £1 shop)

Ink:
Brilliance by Tsukineko (Graphite Black)

Other:
Fiskars squeeze punches (stars)
Copic markers
Black fineliner 
Pinflair glue gel
Corner Chomper 

Here's the inspiration picture - check out what the other DT girls were inspired by. We'd love to see your take on it, too!



Thanks for stopping by!

I love the added stars. It was a happy accident and turned into a fabulous card. x
