Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Happy Friday my friends!

 
Don't' you wish everyday was Friday? These days I sure do because I am having so much fun with the Blast from the Past Challenges and just love seeing all the projects each week. This week all of your kissing cards were so inspiring and I loved commenting on each one of them. Thank you so much for joining me each week!

 

Are you ready for this weeks challenge? How about we do a little polishing?

 

My challenge for you is to create a project using the Polished Stone Technique. This is one of my favorite techniques. You can leave the polished stone as just a background for a card, you can stamp an image on it and color the image (I usually use reinkers to color the image), add a pattern to it by embossing it once it dries with an embossing folder or emboss an image on it like I did for my sample this week. I used Ranger Alcohol reinkers to create my polished stone background for my card but I also have used regular reinkers and rubbing alcohol from my medicine cabinet for this technique too.

The rose image is from the Friendship's Garden stamp set and the sentiment is from the Inside and Out stamp set. I stamped the image and the sentiment with versamark and heat embossed with Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.

The papers I used are Lemon Drop, Passionate Pink and Innocent Pink PL.
 

If you are not familiar or have not tried this technique before, here is the link for Gina's Polished Stone video.

Please upload your creation to the STV gallery, using the tag STVBPSLS05.
You do not need to use Gina K Designs stamps to participate, although we'd love it if you did!
In fact, if you use Gina K Stamps in your entry, your name will be added to the prize drawing TWICE!
Please be sure to create a new project for this challenge versus linking up something you've created before.
You have until next Thursday, April 8, at 8pm CST, to upload your sample. One winner will be drawn at random to win a Gina K stamp set valued at $24.95 or less!

I can't wait to see what you create using the polished stone technique!

It was good to re-visit this technique. Here is my card.
OMG! The gallery is filling up with some beautiful polished stone projects! I love them!
Sharri, your polished stone is beautiful, I love the way the gold adds "veins" to the marbling. Here is mine, not nearly as nice as yours:
