Day two of our hop is all about Polished Stone technique!  that means it's time to get out your alcohol inks and get inky!  My leaf card was done using plastic packaging that you normally throw out in the trash but today I'm using it with alcohol inks to make some leaves that look translucent.  Also check out the background piece on this card it's also a piece of the plastic packaging that I did the polished stone technique on the ran it through my Big Kick with a woodgrain embossing folder.  I really like how this card turned out.  My second card is an easel ( and we all know how much I love easel cards!) shape card.  Did polished stone technique and over stamped the images using white embossing powder and ink.   Hope you liked my cards for the two days I participated in this swap.  Remember the more you comment the more chance you have to win in our drawing.  Next stop is Trudy .
