I thought about this challenge for a while as I could only see the obvious, perfect colours for a flowery card. While I have chosen a favourite flower thinlet, Eclectic Layers, it has been paired with an older technique, which we have the opportunity to explore now that glossy paper has returned to the Stampin' Up!® inventory.
This technique is called Polished Stone and to do it - it's very easy! - you need glossy card, rubbing alcohol and reinkers in your chosen colours. I taught this in a class several years ago, and I think it might be a fun one for early 2018, what do you think? I cut the card to 10cm X 14.3cm and coloured in a variety of combinations. Each one turns out differently, even if you try to get the same result.
For these big butterflies the totally pink, peach, yellow piece was perfect, with a sentiment from Butterfly Basics.
Another one using a two-tone polished stone piece for a dragonfly and butterfly combo. This is one-with-the-lot! The pieces have been re-inserted, there is the lovely lacy border, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and layers - lots of layers, inside and out!
Now it is time for you to head on over to share a project made by Jackie Aitken.
