Onto my card!  The Polished Stone technique is quite fun and very addicting!  You need just a few supplies:  reinkers (pictured below), rubbing alcohol, cotton balls and glossy cardstock, a new item in the catalog!  

Next, add rubbing alcohol to a cotton ball.  Add drops of reinker onto the cotton ball, I added four drops of each color (Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist). 

Next, take the cotton ball and pounce it all over the surface of the glossy cardstock.  Once you’ve done this all over the paper, take a clean cotton ball and dab over where you see puddles. OR you can forget this step.  It depends on the look you want but I did do this step.  Once it dries, you’ll have a beautiful, one of a kind, masterpiece! 

It’s really fun and once you start, you’ll want to experiment with different colors!
