Feel Better

It’s been years since I’ve made a background using the polished stone technique. Thanks to StampTV’s Saturday Live Chat & Challenge I dusted off my old silver ink refill bottle and went looking for cotton balls and rubbing alcohol. After I finished with the technique, I cut the paper with a Labels One Nestabilities die and adhered it to a white DecorativeĀ Labels One die-cut. The silver card base measures 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ and both the butterfly and the sentiment were silver embossed.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I love the polished stone technique! It’s been ages since I’ve used this technique — Thanks for the inspiration!
