September Elemental Challenge - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy September!

A brand new month means an elemental challenge over on the Daring Cardmakers.  I have been been playing with my Distress Oxides to create backgrounds.  You know, Distress Oxides have really interesting properties that enable you to achieve so many different effects.  Unfortunately, it means I will need to buy a few more so not so good on the finances.......


I used glitter paper as the background for my inverse feathers and the die cut feathers were adhered elsewhere on my creation together with a couple of peach glitter ones.  I added a smile sentiment to finish off, after all it's good to smile isn't it?!


This is the elemental board Kathy chose from which I took inspiration.  There are so many different elements to choose and the colours are absolutely gorgeous.  To play along you need to choose any 3 elements - simple!  You can see a lot more inspiration HERE on the Daring Cardmakers blog.


In other news, I have finally taken another step forward on the social media front and am now the proud owner of an instagram account!  However, an instagram account without followers would be rather sad so it would mean a lot to me if you could follow me at simplyshabneez - I will of course follow you back!

See you again soon!
