Autumn Splendor...

Kim's club members used the Polished Stone Technique to create a beautiful fall card with the Autumn Splendor stamp set.

The stamp set can be found in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

You can see some Autumn Meadows designer series paper on the left of the card, as well as some elastic gold cord.

Now for the Polished Stone Technique:

Saturate a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and squeeze out the excess. Place 2 drops of two different reinkers on the cotton ball, as well as a drop of a metallic reinker (gold here).

Swirl and dab the cotton ball onto glossy card stock till you get a pattern you like. Spray the glossy card stock with either hairspray or a matte sealer (from about a foot away). Once dry, stamp a lined image on top in black StazOn, or Basic Black ink, and finish the card as you like.

Enjoy a wonderful fall-like day!
