The first Friday of the month can only mean one thing, right?! It's the November Elemental Challenge over on the Daring Cardmakers of course! I've gone kind of shabby chic for this one. I began by choosing the flower toppers which are really rather old - bought in the sale in Hobbycraft (as you do) but realised I still hadn't used them!
I've distressed the papers, then inked over them with chalk inks as I like the finish it gives for this kind of look.
To break up the colour, I've added elements of green with the ribbon and doily. I've had a roll of hessian in my stash for a long time and it kind of went with the look I was going for so used it as an additional layer.
This is the photo from which you take any 3 elements that take your fancy. I chose the deep purple flowers (love that colour), the green ribbon and the wood (I used the wood effect background paper). I hope you'll join in and find more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team HERE.
Have a lovely weekend and see you again soon!
