I colored the pears and leaf in with rubbing alcohol and re-inkers. Just wanted to see what it would do. It makes the colors run a little. I like it, but next time I would emboss the image that I want to color.

I love this card! Could you give me more information about this technique? It looks so cool!

This is the one I made while writing the Polished Stone tutorial. I think it will be released soon. All you do is take a piece of glossy cardstock and add some drops of metallic reinkers. Here I used gold. Next soak a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and add classic reinkers (here creamy caramel and only orange). Dab the cotton ball all over the glossy cardstock. The ink will run and the metallic ink will settle on top. Once dry, I colored the pears and leaves in with reinker and a watercolor brush dipped in alcohol fpr the runny look!
