Beautiful! All three. I'm a big fan of butterflies anyway, and I love how you pulled the image and made it bold but soft (does that even make sense?). I've never done the polished stone but love the look and need to try. I just checked out your blog and am in love with your tutorials. Thank you so much for sharing!!

Hi Lori, thank you for your awesome comment, I really appreciate it! I totally understand what you mean and that's exactly what I was hoping to achieve. After stamping the butterflies I water colored them with reinkers and an aqua painter hoping to give them some definition. I didn't think you'd be able to see it in the pics. Of course I can 'cause I know it's there but I didn't think anyone else would notice.
I love love love the polished stone technique! It's one of my all time favorites because it's so easy to do and the results are usually beautiful w/usually being the operative word here ;-) I learned how to do it with the tutorial that's right here on Splitcoaststampers. Just click on tutorials in the top left corner of the screen then search for polished stone and it should come right up. The only real issue I had while learning it was not getting enough alcohol on the cotton ball. It works best if it's almost saturated. Please let me know if you have any trouble w/it or need anything at all, I'm always happy to help. Thanks again for your comment! Take care and have a great day! :D
