Lovely card, AQ, the muted tones are just right for a guy. Polished stone is one of my favs too.

Thank you Alsmouse!

I just tried the technique on vellum and decided I like the glossy cs much better. Plus, glossy cs doesn't roll up like the vellum does.

if you want a brighter color, use regular CS, dampen with 91% alcohol & then working quickly, use the AI. This must be done in a well ventilated area or you will get a raging headache. Also try it on colored glossy papers. Silver mirror finish paper & any of the darker blue AI make a wonderful galvanized look.

I just may have to try those techniques. Another technique I'd like to try is aluminum foil with alcohol and reinkers.

I don't have jet lag and it took me a bit to figure it out.

We just need a list on the site for commonly used abbreviations.
