Elemental Inspiration and Happy New Year!!!!!!

Happy New Year to all my lovely followers.  Sorry for the absence but have been a little bit busy with Christmas and a new born who is now 4 weeks old and is fast asleep next to me while I type this.
I finally had some time to craft so this weeks challenge at Daring Cardmakers is called Elemental Inspiration.
We will take turns to choose and post a picture - it could be a photo, a piece of artwork, or maybe a little montage of  bits and pieces we like.  Each of these pictures will have a variety of "elements" that we hope will inspire you to get crafting - and we'd like you to use a minimum of THREE.of the elements you see to make a card   For instance the colour combo could be one element, the LO another, and then there may be a landscape, items in the picture, a quote, stitching lines, the media used to create the picture - all sorts of things.  We will add a little list of suggested elements each month, but you're bound to see more things you can use

So here is Kathy's Elemental Inspiration Picture for January, a beautiful piece of artwork from a fabulous blog: Victoria's Art Visions.

Kathy has also made a little sketch of the Layout which could be used as one of your elements.
Here is my card:
The elements I have picked are the colours, hearts and a vintage feel with the pocket watch.

Don't forgot to check out the Daring Cardmakers blog for more inspiration from the lovely design team.


  1. Lovely card! I really like the combination of gold and craft you've used. And it's so interesting to see how varied all our takes on the theme turned out.

  2. It took me ages to find the hearts you mentioned =) ... silly me. I like what you did with the inspiration picture. Your card challenges me to focus not so much on colours but more on elements next time.
