"Dad & Patti" Layout - Inkido Challenge May 2014

Hi again!  Here is my Design Team layout for Inkido this
 month, based on their fresh & beachy May Mood board.

 I took the colours & textures from the board but didn't have any beach photos to hand,
 so, as my printer is broken at the moment, I looked through my most recently
 printed photos, & used a lovely, light, well-matching one of my D-I-L & partner.

I layered up lots of lovely Inkido papers & inked the 
edges using Ingvilde Bolme chalk inks from Prima.

I enhanced the beautiful Inkido papers with a mask from Prima
 {an older one of a floral swirl - still a favourite!}, some Prima alpha stickers
 & bling SIIC swirl but the tiny confetti bling comes from Inkido.

All the little flowers are from Inkido & very pretty & versatile 
as they are cream & can be misted up to match your page.

The shabby stamping is a vintage corner stamp from Inkido & comes in really handy!

Inkido always brings out the really shabby in me!
  I love to ink up, tear, punch & distress their papers.

Thanks for your visit today!
Inkido papers can be ordered from The Flying Unicorn here.
I have ordered from them before & they ship internationally at actual cost.
{lucky for me I get Inkido papers in return for my Design & Promotional work for them!}
