Elements for June

It's Shabneez's choice of inspiration picture for the start of a new month at Daring Cardmakers - as ever, just choose at least three elements to kick start your card.

I chose the shades of red/orange/pink from the ice lolly, the sprinkle of tiny flowers from the cake and the raised "stripes" from the top of the lolly.

The background wash of colour is just scribbled watercolour pencils blended over with a damp brush. Once that was dry, I scored some vertical lines with the Scor-It (useful for this sort of decorative scoring as it's a "face up" tool).

I cut out three teeny tiny stamped flowers, shaped them slightly with an embossing stylus and sprinkled them on to finish the card.

Tea Time by Graphic 45
Say It All by Hero Arts

Paper: Bristol board

Pearlescent Chocolate Brilliance by Tsukineko

Derwent Watercolour pencils
Copic markers

Here's the inspiration picture if you haven't already seen it on the DCM blog and would like to play along:

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous. I love the added raised lines to match the lolly, such brilliant idea. X
