I am finally sharing the last technique that Heidi challenged us to do in our stamp group. I wanted to finish a second card I had a mind to try before I shared the technique. Polished stone technique, I didn't follow it exactly but HERE is a link to the technique, I just googled it, so you can google and see what video's are out there on this technique.
Many of them use reinkers, I used Alcohol inks and instead of the rubbing alcohol I used alcohol blending solution. I didn't use enough blending solution I think, but I love the way they turned out.
Now for what I made with them. I stamped onto them using Stazon ink since they are done on glossy cardstock. The first one is the one I finished for the challenge.
I just love how colorful it makes the flowers without having to color them.
Stampabilities -- F 1188 (poinsettia stamp)
Martha Stewart - Snowflakes embossing plate and leaf punch
David Tutera -- Celebrate sentiements
Liquid Pearls -- Lemon Yellow
The next one I just finished finally and Love this one too. After stamping and cutting it out the ends curled and I started to try and flatten them but when I laid against the card I liked that look so I kept the ends curled and applied foam adhesive to the back to give it a little dimension.
PSX - Holly stamp
Martha Stewart - Snowflake embossing plate
Stampabilities -- We wish you a merry Christmas sentiment stamp
Here is another picture of it, I had a hard time with getting a picture with no shine on them.
I will be making more of these :)
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
