Default Fossil Stone Technique!

This was a new technique to me, so I thought I'd put a tutorial together.
Here is 2 links to a couple of cards I made:

Fossil Joy , Fossiled Tree

Leave your email address as a post, so I can send you the file.
Julie is it possible to upload your directions here to the site rather than e-mailing each person seperately?
Thanks!

I really wish I could, it would help me out. I emailed them to Beate already, but it is in a jpeg file. I made it on a collage program. I could email it to you as well, and then you could figure out how???? I am some what computer literate, but in so many ways, NOT! LOL

Here are the pictures and directions Julie is sharing. Looks like a fun technique and another good use for glossy cardstock!

Thanks for sharing, Julie!

I've tried this with Mellow Moss and Creamy Caramel. I love your choices of the greens.

Has anyone else done this, and what ink colours did you use?

Thanks again for sharing, its a great document!

What stamp sets would look good stamped on a piece of c/stock done with this technique?

I did one with Nature Prints, but now that the Summer Mini is finished, so is demo-ing Nature Prints!

Julie, your Lovely as a Tree is beautiful, as is the snowflake, any other possibilites out there? I know there's such a creative group of ladies here, I'm sure there must be countless ideas!

I tried this technique last night and it turned out really cool. I used really rust and pumpkin pie. The next time I will use more of a contrast. I'm going to emboss leaves in gold on it. Thanks for posting this technique.

Default Country Blessing

I just tried this technique and love it. I'm going to teach it at my stamping clubs in October and I think I'll use the Country Blessing set since that's the stamp set I'll be focusing on next month. I think it will look great with the leaves! Hopefully that will help motivate my stampers to purchase the Autumn Elegance Kit!

Greetings Louise,

Yes, we do understand that many cannot open the .pdf files directly from SplitCoastStampers... self included

For your enjoyment, the file should be arriving very shortly via email.

In the future, when you want to see/save these file types, simply right click on the file... then click on "save target as"... download it to your desktop... and from there it will open for you (providing you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer).

Hoping this helps and do have a FUNtastic day!

Dancing Rain
