PS Technique Sample #3

Well, here we are at Day 3...

This is another very simple card to make, using the Polished Stone Technique.  For a tutorial on how to achieve this technique, go to my video HERE

I actually used a silver reinker on this one too, but not enough to show up a lot...probably can't even see it.  If you click on the pic you might be able to see it here & there. :)

This is from one of my favorite sets, "Inspired By Nature."  As on yesterday's card, I embossed the main image.  Stamped the coneflowers with SU Craft Black ink, applied black embossing powder, and embossed with my heat tool. I just love the contrast of the black on the background - love it! :)  Again, I made this layout VERY simple, to draw attention to the technique. :)
