This is my 2nd attempt at the polished stone tecnique. I used Bashful Blue & Apricot Appeal. I really don't care for the way that they combined on the cardstock, it ended up some weird shade of green. I guess I used too much alcohol??
Overall, I am pleased with the card. I guess I just need more practice with the tecnique. I think I will add glitter to the center of the cut out flower, I just didn't want it stuck to the scanner.

The card looks fine as is, but if you want a different *polished stone* look, next time try less alcohol and put three inks on the cotton ball. As you press onto the glossy, slightly twist your hand each time so that the pattern of ink varies. I like this look, though.
