2015-01-19; January Stamp Camp card #3


Card #3 from the January Stamp Camp was designed around this background; Polished Stone.

I had fun making the background but had some difficulty with stamping the images onto it. I should have let the background dry more thoroughly. No matter, it still is a fun color combo and reminded me of a technique I used to use quite some time ago. I think I still have lots of inks hiding somewhere for this.

The polished stone is layered onto a black mat. Rather than try to cut up the background I opted to slice a narrow piece of black card stock to lay down on top of the polished stone. This makes like it was individually cut up and laid in place.

    Cool card, Bonnie! I think I still have several of those backgrounds (the ones from years ago!) that I got from someone. I really need to get through my “card parts” again!

    That looks like alcohol ink that you used? I’ve done some of those backgrounds too. They are really fun to make and you never get two alike. You really created a great card! I like how you cut the pieces apart to make them look framed!

      Vicki; nope not alcohol ink; just regular dye ink dropped onto a cotton ball that had been saturated with rubbing alcohol. It gives the same effect as alcohol ink.

      And I did not cut the pieces apart. I cut a 1/8th inch paper strip and just laid it on top of the polished stone to make it look cut up. Much easier than cutting the pieces I think!

    I have forgotten how to do the polish stone technique.

      A super easy way to do polished stone is to wet down a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and then add a drop or two of dye reindeers to the same ball. Pounce on shinny card stock for best results. I hope that helps.
