This technique I believe was demoed at reno and I thought I would give it a try :-)
I dont have a wide selection of reinkers so I used the two I love out of the 6 that I have ... its alot like polish stone BUT you DONT use metallic reinkers.. Emboss image 1st with white EB powder and then heat then taking a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol and 2 colors of reinkers ( 2 drops of each color in each corner of cotton ball ~ example 2 drops of bliss blue top and 2 drops of lavender on bottom ) and dab all over glossy cs when you have the cs covered ( even ontop of embossed image ) you then re heat your embossed image and the ink on the embossed image fades away ( like magic) HTH

beautiful background to use with the snowflake, a gorgeous card! I have doen polished stone without the reinkers, but thanks very much for the tip about reheating the EP to get rid of the ink i always just wiped with a tissue!
