Polished-stone-bday Another Stampin' Saturday card – from the "mini stamp a stack".  We used the polished stone technique to create the pattern on the glossy cardstock.  Stamps are from the Bitty Birthday and Outlined for Fun sets.  We used stampin' write markers to colour the images as well. 

Polished stone requires glossy cardstock and rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol), cotton pads (makeup removal pads), ink pad reinkers and a well ventilated room.  I also like to use rubber gloves to keep my hand from getting too inky.  Wet a cotton pad with rubbing alcohol, and add drops of reinker to the pad, placed fairly close together.  Dab the cotton pad repeatedly over the glossy cardstock to get the effect.  If you rework an area while it's still wet, you tend to get a more muted effect, if you let an area dry before going over it again, you get more distinct "spots".  Once it's dry you can stamp on top of it!

A reminder that the three payment option for the demonstrator starter kit ends this month – if you'd like more information, please contact me or RSVP to attend my information evening next Wednesday!
