Tick Tock it's Your Birthday

Good Morning Crafters

Today it is Marleen's tutorial to share!

I am handing over to Marleen to go through her tutorial with you.

For this little card Ive used the following goodies from Imagination crafts:
Other goodies from stash:
White card stock
Versamark watermark pad
Clear embossing powder
Distress ink (antique linen & walnut stain) 
Flat back pearls

For my tutorial I have had a play and made my own little spray mist.

 I filled a mini mister with water and added 3-4 drops of the Coca Inkadink ink to it. 

I then added a a pinch of mica powder and gave the bottle a good shake

I lay the "alpha mask" on top of a piece of white card stock and started spraying.

I covered the whole mask.

I removed the mask and left my card stock to dry.

The dry result. 
I think it shows really well how shiny the spray came out. 
I really love the effect and cant wait to play with all the other colours in the Inkadinks colours in my vintage pack

This is the completed card using the above background created.

 I made the clocks using the "Clock & Fob" mask with the Silkies paint.
Once the paint was dry I used the rest of my already made spray from above and covered both clocks before cutting them out.

Before I put my card together I took my background and covered it with Versamark and clear embossing powder. I did 2 coats and left it to harden. 
Once hardened I took the paper and crumbled it up to create some cracks which I dabbed with distress ink.

  The greeting is from the "Dragonfly" Decoupage stamp set. 
It is stamped with black ink and sprayed with my spray and cut to size.

My butterfly is from the "Butterfly" gilding stamp set, also stamped and sprayed before cut out.
To finish off I added pearls and the little flower. 

So what do you think? Something a bit different.

Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.
