Polished Stone Technique With A Twist
I have for you today a card I made using the Polished Stone Technique with a twist! The method used for this card is easier and faster than the normal Polish Stone Technique. You can view this POST for instructions on the normal Polish Stone Technique.
1 Peter 2:9
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
I created this card for a Splitcoaststampers Technique Lovers Challenge involving the Polished Stone Technique. The challenge was to create a card using an update for this technique, which dries much faster and without a heat gun or sealer. Here are the instructions:
- Wet two or three cotton balls with rubbing alcohol
- Add drops of reinker of your choice
- Add drops of Wink of Stella
- Pounce onto glossy cardstock to get a stone/granite look with shimmer
With the normal technique, metallic pigment ink is added, heat set, and covered with a sealer. The great thing about the technique with a twist is that wink of stella dries right away and you can make multiples panels quickly! If you don’t have wink of stella, try Smooch Spritz, Perfect Pearls – anything with shimmer!
Unfortunately, it is difficult to see the shimmer on my card!
