Polished Marble Technique

This was a toughy for me.

I didn't have glossy cardstock or metallic reinker. Became very tricky for me to complete the project because I had to use fixative spray when done, and nothing wants to stick to that.

Here is Gina's lovely video on how to reproduce the look of stone or marble:

Polish Stone with Gina K.

The first photo is just of the polished stone without anything else. I adhered it easily to Gina K. Pure Luxury white cardstock 120#.

The second photo shows the floral focal image, pearls and ribbon - more of a finished card.

I sponged the background with rubbing alcohol, felt applicators, Memento Pixi Dust pink, Sahara Desert tan, Jumbo Java darker brown, and Brilliance Galaxy Gold. The stamp is from Gina K. Designs "Friends are Forever." Colored with Copic markers. Added some pink pearls, brown ribbon and sprayed the focal image with Perfect Pearls spray.

Thank you so much for looking!!!
