4CC #402 Polished Stone Twist

Thursday, May 10, 2018

It's Thursday, WOW!

The weeks are just zooming by! 

It's time for a new challenge 
at
4 Crafty Chicks!
I'm hosting and I chose an old technique as the Twist this week, 
the polished stone technique with alcohol inks.

I spent an afternoon playing around with this technique and ended up with many backgrounds.  This was one of my favorites. It reminds me of the ocean.  I used the wave dies from My Favorite Things and cut a second set out of gold vellum so each layer would stand out.  

Make sure and stop by the Hen House and check out the rest of the chicks' beautiful projects!  Everyone did an awesome job with the polished stone technique!  Then come play with us either with our regular ATG or try out the Polished Stone Twist!

STAMPS: Mermaid's Tail (Essentials by Ellen); Sentiment from Ocean Wisdom (Stampendous).
