A 'case' of Polished Stone

Hi Everyone! On Saturday I taught a group of ladies the Polished Stone Technique. I haven't been too well lately, so wanted some cards that were easy enough to prepare, and easy for them to create. I came across this set in one of the latest issues of Cardmaking stamping & Papercraft, designed by Jayne Mercer. So we gave them a go. They have been cased completely! I have just made them all standard card size instead of the two little ones.

I don't have many re-inkers, just the In Colours, so I took this as an opportunity to use up a bit of my left over n Colour Cardstock. We all made the blue ones, then I had cut up an extra couple kits in Wasabi and Pomegranate. The Pomegranate ones are gorgeous!! The Re-Inkers I have used are Soft Sky and Blue Bayou, River Rock and Wild Wasabi & Pink Pirouette and Purely Pomegranate. The technique has turned out beautifully.

Thanks Jayne, for the lovely inspiration and for getting me to give it a go!! Now to buy some more Re-Inkers!! lol

Till Next Time...
