June Elemental Challenge - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy June!

June already - where is the year going?!  It's little dull and cooler today which is a shock to system after the all the glorious sunshine!  I think the garden will be grateful if it rains though.

The first Friday of the month is the Elemental Challenge over on the Daring Cardmakers.  I've gone a little floral for my take on it using a few new techniques I have learnt over the past few weeks.

This time, I have used acylic paints to create the background using the smooshing technique that I would usually use with my ink pads.  

I've also used sewing for the first time on a card - if you can call it that!!!  A trio of cross stitches.  It's a start, right?!

Below is the June Challenge and you can choose any 3 elements or more from it.  I opted for the colours (which count as one), the flowers, circle, and cross.

You can see lots more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team HERE.  I look forward to seeing your creations!

Have a lovely weekend,
