Polished Stone Technique


For today's challenge to use alcohol. I did the polished stone technique for background (Cool Caribbean and Silver) and used my Copic alcohol markers to color image. That's as much alcohol as I could get into my challenge without a cocktail (it's much too early in the day for that!).
The bird and flower image was cut out with my detail scissors so it adds a little dimension to the card popped up ever so slightly. Card is Glossy White for the polished stone part and matted with Taken With Teal and Brushed Silver.
