SU208 Faux Polished Stone Technique

Stamps: Simply Said.

Cardstock: Black, Bashful Blue, White, White Glossy.

Ink: Black.

Re-inkers: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Silver Colorbox.

Accessories: cotton ball, rubbing alcohol. White gel pen, Birds and Swirls embossing folder, navy grosgrain ribbon, heart to heart X-Large punch.

To make Faux Polished Stone:

Dampen your cotton ball with rubbing alcohol. I purchased this from our local Drug Store.

Add a drop of Bashful Blue, Night of Navy and Silver Colorbox to the dampened cotton ball.

Dab the cotton ball over glossy cardstock. 

You can dab lots or little – just continue dabbing and blending until you achieve the look you want.

The rubbing alcohol will cause the re-inkers to blend together and essentially the paper is ‘resisting’ the ink you put on it.  The Silver Colorbox give a nice metallic sheen to the card.

Set aside for the ink to dry before continuing.
