February Elemental Challlenge - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy February!

Yay it's Friday and the sun is out - can't ask for anything more being the simple soul I am!

The first Friday of the month can only mean one thing - the elemental challenge over on the Daring Cardmakers and here is is my take on it:

I've gone for a clean and simple look using the block capitals, balloons and colours from the image that Dawn has chosen below.

Once I cut our the 'XOXO' I backed it with paper to make it stand out.  I added die cut hearts and simply drew the balloon strings on.  To finish I added some hand drawn stitching to one of the balloons.

This is the image from which I took inspiration and I hope you'll join in.  Loads more inspiration HERE.

Before I go, I just wanted to share a little inspiration from my day trip to Creativeworld which is the International Trade Fair for Hobby, Craft and Art supplies in Frankfurt.

It was an amazing experience and I was stunned by the sheer volume of creativity.  It's huge and you need more than the few hours I had to see it fully appreciate it, but my mission was accomplished!  I am very grateful I got the opportunity to go.

I hope you have a great weekend whatever you have planned.  I have my first demo of the season on Sunday for Trimcraft and I'm very much looking forward to showing off all the new products.

See you next week!

Products Used:
Everything from the Bubbly Funk 'Love' box apart from adhesive and scalloped card.
