Polished Stone Background for a Dragonfly



This week's Ways to Use It challenge over at Splitcoaststampers is to use one of the reinkers techniques. I chose the Polished Stone tutorial here:

I love the result! It made a lovely background for my dragonfly which I stamped in archival black, bordered it with black cs with a fleur de lis border and used a narrow embossing folder on the cardbase that co-ordinated with it well. It left faint marks on the cs so I went over them with my scor buddy to make them stand out as part of the design.






Supplies:

Stamps: Tim Holtz dragonfly, SU sentiment
Paper: white and black cs, glossy cs
Paper Size: A2
Ink: Ranger Archival Black
Accessories: Distress Broken China, Faded Jeans, and Antique Linen reinkers; rubbing alcohol, Cuttlebug narrow embossing folder, fleur de lis border punch, scor buddy

  1. Very pretty, Susan! The black really pops on your polished stone background. And that is a great tip about getting around that bit of an edge from the EF.
