Please refer to the directions for doing the Polished Stone technique.
- I Started by randomly putting drops of the alcohol inks on the felt pad.
- I then added the blending solution and pounced the ink applicator onto the glossy paper. Reapply ink if needed to cover your paper. The end result should look something like this.
- I stamped Bella with Flowers onto white paper and colored her with Copic markers.
- I colored Bella using the following Copic Colors C0, C2, C3, C5, C7, RV02, RV04.
- The Purple flowers were colored with colors BV01, BV02, BV04, RV02, RV04. I colored the purple part of the flowers first, layering the colors and then I added the pink to blend it into the purple.
- The Pink flowers were colored with BV02, BV04, RV00, RV02, RV04 . I colored the Pink first then layered the purple around the centers last.
- The stems are colored with YG03.
- The envelope is lightly colored with V000, V01, RV04.
- Shadows are V22.
- The next thing I did was cut out the image using Nestabilities Labels 28
- Then I started on my layering. I cut a black frame using Labels 28
- I then layered the papers as shown in the pictures below. I used the pieces of paper that I cut the dies out of. This can save a lot of waste of the paper.
- Now the card is read to embellish. Those of you who have seen my cards in the past, know I cannot have a card without some jewels on it. I also like to add more dies if it can be done.
Here is the finished card.. I added the corner dies using glue, as this seems to work the best for me. The little flowers I added around Bella are the waste pieces from the center of the corner dies. I also added some jewels to the center of the flowers in the corner dies and the small (waste piece) flowers.
I made a half a sheet of the polished stone technique and managed to use all of it except for one small strip That might just show up someplace else.
I hope you enjoyed my take on the polished stone technique.
Thanks for stopping by.
