Poor Man's Polished Stone Technique


Here our Kathy (Seaside Stampin' Ink) demonstrates another of the ways to use our Mini Spritzers and Stompers:


Here's a terrific technique she shares with you, which she calls Poor Man's Polished Stone. Load the felt stomper (included in the kit) with a few drops of dye reinker:


Let the stomper sit for a moment while you make "blobs" of color on a piece of Kromekote Glossy Cardstock with a Krylon Leafing Pen:


Immediately spray the cardstock using a spritzer filled with 91% rubbing alcohol:


Smear your inked-up stompers across the cardstock:


Look how the dye ink mixes with the Krylon Leafing Pen to create lovely striations of color for this beach scene:


Want to add a full moon? Just use your pinky finger to lift off a circle of color (how clever is that!):


Give the cardstock a few minutes to dry, and then stamp your images in black right over the background:


Seaside Stampin' Ink carries many stamps that are perfect for creating wonderful scenic art, which you can find by clicking here.
Add a finishing touch to your card by lining the edges with the Krylon Leafing Pen:



And that's it, you're done! Check out the beautiful results:
