I know that there is a name for the technique that I used so maybe someone can help me out here. You use glossy white cardstock, a colored re-inker (elegant eggplant in my case), and also a silver re-inker. Drop drops of the ink over the cardstock. Load up a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol, then dab all over the cardstock, spreading out the ink - but only dabbing up and down, not rubbing on the paper. Once the paper is completely covered, sprinkle with clear embossing powder then heat set. Anyone know what that is called?
Hard to tell but, I did use the linen/versamark on the whisper white and also french script/versamark on the silver piece.
I remembered the name of this technique - Polished Stone. Instead of felt for rubbing alcohol, I used a cotton ball.

I've only used felt for the polished stone technique-never thought about a cotton ball. A friend's dad made several of us a block of wood with velcro on top to hold little squares of felt so we wouldn't get ink all over us.
By the way, your card is lovely. The colors are terrific!
