I was determined to get this card done tonight even though I have to get up at 4:30 to get ready for work. I wanted to try the polish stone technique. I used glossy white cs for the image, used re-inkers, rubbed with cotton balls and alcohol, let dry then sealed it with acrylic sealer. I didn't get the right look to stamp the image directly on the paper after I did everything so I decided to stamp the image with black stazon onto transparent paper. It still gives it the glossy look to it. I used olive-lime bazzill cs as the base. I layered with GP white cs and ran it through the CB Mesh folder. I also ran the CB Distressed folder through the striped dp and again with the CB Mesh folder onto the lime strip. I layered with Night Quite Navy cs. The main image is raised using 3D squares. I then added a chipboard oval, added 2 white brads and the sentiment says "wish" for the hardware.
It's time for me to get to sleep, I can't stay up like my twin sister (okstamper) does everynight.
Thanks for the challenge, I enjoy them when I can.
