Elemental Inspiration.

The summer holidays are going fast and its August already.  Which means as its the first Friday of the month its elemental challenge time at Daring Cardmakers.
Here is the beautiful picture to get your creativity flowing and remember you need to use at least 3 elements.

The elements I have used are the patterned papers, chair, organza, flowers, wood and a distressed/shabby chic look.

The papers are from Prima and the chair is a stamped image from Papermania and the Chatsworth house collection which I have had for ages.  I then distressed all the edges of the papers using the edge of my scissors and inked up the edges in Tim Holtz distress ink in Tea Dye.

I made the little organza flower by melting the edges with a tea light and added some sparkly beads to the centre.  I finished with a few flowers and a wooden butterfly.
Don't forget to stop by the Design Team Blogs for more inspiration.
