Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

I have waited all year for the opurtunity to audition to be on the Graphics  45 Design Team and the time has come for my chance ! I thought it would be fun to share a few of my designs that I am most pleased with including a few that use Graphics 45 wonderful products! I am a huge fan of their products and would love the honor to be one of their design team members! I hope you enjoy my samples and thank you for  stopping by.

Spring Fling Tag Book
this features Graphics 45 "Once Upon a Spring time" Papers

Wicked Little Coaster Book
features Alcohol inking and dry embossing.

Steam Punk Princess 6x6 Book
I used Graphic 45 Steam Punk Debutant and A Proper Gentleman Papers

Hidden Messages Card
this card features embossed metal that I alcohol inked

Steam Punk Debutant Journal
I used Graphic 45's Steam Punk Debutant papers along with Tim Holts cogs to create this book.

Heart  Inspired Card
For this card I embossed a piece of shimmer card stock then used Versa Mark ink over the embossed area and sprinkled with UTEE for a really vintage look.

Poe's Curiosity Curio
For this curio cabinet I sprayed with Glimmer mist to give it an aged dark  gothic look and also stamped with Staz On ink on the glass.

Now in honor of my favorite paper company I am going to do a little giveaway...just leave a comment and lt me know what your favorite Graphics 45 paper pack is or was! Then I will randomly draw a winner on March 15th and you will win an 8x8 paper pack of "Tropical Travelogue"!
