May Elemental Challenge - Daring Cardmakers

Happy Friday!

The first Friday of the month means an elemental challenge over on the Daring Cardmakers.  My inks and heat embossing are making an appearance again for this one! I made a background using the distress inks and die cut the butterfly.  The butterfly came with a thinlit which I cut and used to to place over the the inked butterfly like a stencil.  I then used the versamark on it and heat embossed it.  I love the sparkly effect you get with the Tonic Nuvo Glitter Embossing power.


I'm going to personalise the card for my son's classmate whose party is tomorrow.  Well, who doesn't love a glittery butterfly?!  I'm sure she'll love it!

Below is the the fabulous mood board Joanne chose.  I love the colours and all the different elements.  You have to choose at least 3 of the elements for the challenge.  I chose the pattern from the socks (embossing folder), the colours and the butterfly.


There's lots more inspiration from the DT members HERE so I hope you'll join in!

Enjoy the weekend,
Shabneez

Absolutely gorgeous! I love the stitched effect around the circle especially, is that a stamp or did you do it freehand?
