I've seen so many beautiful cards on SCS that feature the Polished Stone technique, and I wanted to try it for myself. The technique calls for several colors of classic reinkers, along with a metallic reinker, but all I have is classic reinkers. So, I thought I'd improvise and add Pearl-Ex powder to my paper along with the ink. So after inking, spritzing, smushing & letting my paper dry, I stamped the image from Upsy Daisy in black Stazon on top of my marbled paper. Then I ran it through the Big Shot with the Top Note die. The only problem was that the Pearl-Ex flakes off w/o something to bind it to the paper, so I then decided to cover the whole image with Versamark & clear embossing powder. It was then that I thought I'd try using UTEE (in 3 layers!) and do the Cracked Glass effect on the image. After removing from the freezer & cracking, I inked a sponge w/basic black ink and rubbed it into the cracks, then wiped the image clean w/a baby wipe. The flower border on the left side is from Fresh Cuts, and the sentiment is from Best Yet (retired hostess set). Cardstock colors used are Basic Black, Summer Sun, and Tangerine Tango.
