My Girl and A Caddie

 And in the blink of an eye it's March and time for me to post again for Imaginarium Designs...This time I am paring gorgeous ID chipboard with the beautiful papers from Pion Designs...and don't you just think they go perfect together?

This is once again my beautiful daughter Chantelle.

I love the design of the Vine adds such an elegant touch to my LO! I first painted it with gesso and then with various Inx from Dona Salazar. After a liberal spraying with Lindys Stamp Gang mist, I covered it with coarse salt and let it dry...that resulted in the speckled effect. I treated all the chipboard in the same manner.

I cut the 's' of from the phrase "My Girls".

For this LO I used the following pieces...
Heart Top Picket fence IDB 0005

My Girls Phrase IDP 0035

Vine Flourish IDF 0004

Tags Caddie

 For this project Imaginarium meets another of my favourites...Tim Holtz...and they most certainly make a very good team!

On this side I used a piece of the James Border and some small Main Letter Set letters. The border I treated with Distress Embossing powder and Distress Inks. The letters I inked and stamped with Mix'd Media Inx.

This Steam Punk Clock I just adore!!! All grunge'd up and all....again inked with Mix'd Media Inx and embossed with clear UTEE.

Here I used a piece from the 4 Circles with Lines Border and James Corners. The border was treated the same as the clock and the corners the same as the border. And any guesses who the ID cards represent??? Wink, wink...

Another piece from the James border and 2 small Edward Relief's .. also distressed with Distress embossing Powders and inked with Distress Ink...
I used the following pieces...

4 Circles Border with Lines IDB 0002

Steam Punk Clock IDS 0030

James Border IDB 009

Main Letter Set Uppercase Small IDA 0006

James Corners IDC 0010

Edward Relief Small IDT 0032
