Happy Birthday Nicole!

I made the background of this card using a technique I learned on the Mixed Media workshop last Saturday.
All you need is: a craft sheet, Ranger Distress Inks and water.
This is a really fun technique and it will give you different results every time you do it!
If you use a lot of water you may have to iron your paper to flatten it again. For this background I used 2 different colours of the distress inks.

"Tick Tock" was stamped with the Brushed Alpabet from Autumn Leaves which just arrived at MLS, along with some other great Autumn Leaves products.

After I stamped the text, I coloured the letters with Ranger Perfect Pearls. A must have :)
The chipboard frame was painted with a paintdabber and then I stamped on the clock before finishing it with 2 layers of UTEE.
