February elements

It's the first Friday of the month so that can only mean an "elemental" challenge over at Daring Cardmakers - just use at least three elements from the inspiration picture to help kick start your project.

I won a grab bag from the lovely folk at Retro Rubber a while back which included a set with several cacti - since it hadn’t seen ink yet I thought this would be the perfect opportunity! As well as cacti, I chose red/green/pink, a bow and a handwritten style sentiment as my elements.

I’ve gone very clean and simple with a one layer card, just the tiny bow made with silver thread and a line drawn with a silver gel pen as embellishment. The flower is a line image so I stamped in light pink and coloured that with pencils, the rest are solid stamps so the inks did the heavy lifting.

Cactus (Momenta)
Say It All (Hero Arts)

Bristol board

Momento Luxe by Tsukineko (Love Letter)
Distress Oxide by Ranger (Evergreen Bough)
Versafine by Tsukineko (Spanish Moss, Smokey Grey)
Distress by Ranger (Spun Sugar)

Silver thread
Silver gel pen
Charcoal pencil
Coloured pencils
MISTI (useful for solid stamp, especially new ones!)
Corner Chomper 

Here's our inspiration this month if you'd like to play along and didn't arrive via the DCM blog:
