Welcome back to the craft room and another Flashback Friday. Todays post, Polished Stone Easter card features an interesting technique. Back in April of 2010 I ran across the Gina K Designs YouTube video Technique: Polished Stone. It sounded interesting so I had to give it a try. With Easter right around the corner, I used this technique to create two Easter Cards. Join me as we take a step back in time.
Polished Stone Easter Card
Last week on StampTV, the Blast from the Past challenge was to create a project using the “Polished Stone” technique. Gina K did a fabulous video back in September 2009 that you can watch here: Technique: Polished Stone.
I had so much fun with this project that I made two Easter Cards.
When I created my Polished Stone look, I used Adirondack Alcohol Inks in Meadow, Lettuce and Copper. I, like a few other people online, have noticed that the metallics tend to rub off, so I used a tissue and removed a good deal of the color. That left just the right amount of sparkle to give it that veined look of stone.
For the Butterfly card, I wanted a more antique look, so I used my waterproof ink with the Martha Stewart stamp so it would dissolve away just a tad.
I wasn’t very chatty back then, but I did enjoy the creative process; creating these cards. I still have the first card in my stash, but I gave the butterfly card to my Mom that Easter. She absolutely loved it!
Thank you so much for joining me for another Flashback Friday post. Have you ever tried the Polished Stone technique? If so let me know in the comments down below. Have a fantastic weekend and I’ll see you again soon for another Flashback Friday post.
