What's My Mark?

Welcome to today's post which is for the 
New Challenge over at
Addicted to Stamps and More which is
Make Your Mark.

I was playing around in my craft room and wondered how
just ordinary re-inkers would look on glossy paper.
So I gave it a go and was pleasantly surprised with the result.
I used SU Marina Mist/Tim's Peacock Feathers
and Dusty Concord Distress Spray Stain.
I then got out my ARTplorations A-Bloom-and-Three-Buds
and added texture paste dabbing with my fingers to get lift.
Once that was dry I Versamarked it then
covered it in PearlEx powder.
I guess you could say I really have Made my Mark!
Now I was really excited as to how gorgeous it looked.
I rubbed a bit off to get a little more colour back on the
left side. This was cut with a stitched die.
Added some coloured cs for  highlighting
then attached to Pearlized card base.
Sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping cut from
a JustRight Tag.

Here's how to
 Make your Mark - your entry MUST contain the use of 
anything that can make a mark - Stampin' Write,

I just love your mixed media card Ina! What a clever idea to add Versamark onto dry embossing paste to add the powder, it gives a gorgeous pearly result. Simply beautiful! Have a great mother and daughter holiday and crafty time in Townsville! Hugs Gwendolyn
