Today’s TECHNIQUES & TIPS is kinda a BLAST FROM THE PAST! It’s called POLISHED STONE and this is a technique that was very popular a long time ago. I think it’s time to bring it back! It’s easy, but a bit messy! You can’t be afraid to get inky fingers!
And, since its an old technique, I thought I would use an old stamp set–LOVELY AS A TREE
Did you know this is the oldest stamp set in the catalog. I think it made it’s debut in 2001. Do you have it???
The easiest way to share this technique is with a video. So……here you go.
One of the fun things about this technique is that every time you do it it will look different–no 2 are the same!
- You will need: Rubbing Alcohol, Cotton Ball, and 3 Reinkers (for this card I have Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz & Wild Wasabi)
- Saturate your cotton ball with the alcohol
- Put about 3 drops of each of the reinkers on the cotton ball–make sure to spread them out a bit
- Dab cotton ball all over GLOSSY CARDSTOCK until it is completely covered–let dry (doesn’t take very long at all!)
- Complete card as desired!
- Crumb Cake Card Base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
- Basic Black: 5 1/8″ x 2 5/8″
- Glossy Cardstock: 5″ x 2 1/2″

Here is another one I made with this fun technique:
