Direct to paper polished stone technique

Here's a way to get that polished stone technique even if you don't have any re-inkers.

Gather your supplies:
Pigment inks
Glossy white card stock
Alcohol
cotton

Start off with a juicy pigment ink. I used colorbox petal point inks in slate blue, midnight and frost white.

Using the direct to paper technique, dab the midnight and slate blue onto your glossy card stock.

Next, wet your cotton with alcohol and dab onto the card stock blending the two inks.




Add more ink if desired and keep blending until you get something you like. Lastly, add the frost white and blend in a bit to lighten and highlight.




Once done, let dry and use as a back ground for your card. I used mine for the card sketch challenge on SCS, see link here.

Here's my finished card.




Stamps used:
Snowmen is from Winter tags by The Angel Company
Sentiment by Great Impressions

Other supplies and details

Inks - see above and Palette Noir
Colored with glaze gel pens.
Glitter used on the left snowman for his hat and for the snow.

Paper - Hot off the Press
Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso.
