I just learned this technique not too long ago…man, it is SO cool.  I hope you enjoy this and try it out for yourself.


Supplies that you will need:

Glossy Card Stock

2 or 3 Re-inkers (one may be metallic)

Cotton Balls

Rubbing Alcohol


Step 1. Soak a cotton ball with alcohol and dot with 2 or 3 drops of each in color.

Step 2. Repeatedly dab cotton ball over card stock until you achieve the look you want.

Step 3. If using a metallic ink, allow to dry, then spray with acrylic sealer.

Step 4. Use as background, stamp with StazOn or Basic Black ink, or emboss an image.

So, here is a card that was made using the polished stone technique by my dear friend and stamping sister Elizabeth Harris.  Thank you Elizabeth for share your beautiful card!  Here is her recipe.  Supplies are all Stampin' Up!  DIVAIC14SnowSwirled
