Happy Birthday, Carrie!

Today is my forum friend, Carrie's birthday. I made this card using distress inks, various stamps & gold embossing which isn't as clear as I would like in this photo. The stampbord tile was coloured with alcohol inks, (butterscotch, red pepper) blended with solution to give a faded centre & reddened edges & then I applied the time rub ons & gel clock sticker. To get the crackle effect I applied a layer of Ranger's Inkessentials Crackle Accents.

Beautiful indeed , Paula ! So special !!!
loving all the different techniques ! I finally have ideas of using the Crackle Accent now at least more than a year of getting it ! lol

I love moving between styles these days rather than to use a signature style all the time ! lol !
