Korner Challenge - Polished Stone

Inspiration comes from a variety of places.  So often, my inspiration comes from YOU!!  During a Hostess Club swap this past Wednesday, one of my incredibly talented downline created this gorgeous Halloween card using the Polished Stone Technique.  Tell  me that's not just killer??  Patty inspires me with so many different ideas with her swap cards and this one is no different.  As soon as I saw it, I knew today's challenge was going to be Polished Stone!

Polished Stone is a technique created using glossy card stock, a cotton ball, rubbing alcohol and reinkers.  The link above will take you to a wonderful tutorial in Split Coast Stampers if you're new to this particular technique.  For my card, I'm still working on fall colors.  the leaves in my yard are starting to turn and pretty soon, I'll have enough of them on the ground to fill a couple dozen lawn bags.  While I'm not a big fan of raking, I love the blanket of color it gives.

Now it's your turn!  Grab some glossy paper and your favorite reinkers and make try this fun technique.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!
