Creative-Sketches CS07 – Week 7 Polished Stone Technique

Welcome to this week’s Creative Sketches Blog and another Challenge!!

This week we have a sketch challenge for you. Complete a card, scrapbook page, sewing project or whatever strikes your fancy and upload it to your blog/online gallery. Then come back here. We’ve provided a place a the end of this post for you to share your interpretation of our sketch. Submission will be accepted for one week only!

If you would like some inspiration, our Design Team’s projects are below the SKETCH FRAME.  Each image links back to the designer’s blog for more information. I hope to see you every week; let’s make this a regular “sketch date!”

This week we have a challenge using the technique Polished stone.  Polished stone is usually made by dabbing various colors with alcohol and metallic inks onto glossy cardstock. The alcohol makes the inks blend and run, and the metallic inks add some metallics to the coloring. It can take on totally different looks with the same colors depending on how much alcohol and metallic inks are added to the sponge. Here are this weeks design team projects. Try your hand at this technique and play along. We’d love to see your creations.
