Hopping into Spring with Metallics!

Hi everyone! Sonia here with my shares for October. We've finally had a bit of sun here in WA and my mojo seems to have rebooted itself along with the sunshine :)
For this month I was in a bit of a mood for metallics so all of my chipboard has been altered using aged metallic embossing powders. There are so many different colours to choose from and it colours your chipboard easily with a gorgeous shine

'Chase your Dreams'

Imaginarium Designs products used: 'Chase your Dreams' Phrase (IDP0197), 'Leaves and Circles Flourish (IDFL0008) and Sheet of 7 Leaves (IDFL0018) 

The aged gold embossing powder puts wonderful texture onto the surface of the chipboard. A little bit of blue over spray from the mists adds a slight patina effect

 The mixture of fonts on the 'Chase your Dreams' chipboard phrase are perfect!
Next I had a play with the aged silver embossing powder

'Precious Baby Girl'

 Imaginarium Designs products used: Skeletal Feather (IDDL0003) and 'Precious Baby Girl' phrase (IDP0047) 
The Skeletal Feather is such a fabulous statement piece all by itself!! 
 The aged Silver embossing powder is perfect on the chipboard phrase and sets off the pinks and lilacs of the background beautifully
Finally I had a play with a set of ATC's. I love creating these to use on gifts to add that special personal touch

'Artist Trading Cards'

Imaginarium Designs products used: Desnise's Art Deco (IDDD0010), Nat's Hand Drawn Leaves (IDD0044) and Denise's Flourish (IDDD0003)

 This time I used an aged Teal embossing powder. I love the shades of colour that the powder puts on the chipboard
 Denise's Art Deco Frame was cut in half after heat embossing to use as a flourish at the top of each card
