Tip Top Tuesday - Nature's Inspiration/Polished Stone

 This week at Top Tip Tuesday our fab teamie, Paula has come up with a wonderful 

tutorial !  

If you've ever wondered how to get super inking effects then this is one tutorial you should have a look at. 

It'a called 'Polished Stone' and is as versatile as any effect can be, as you change and modify it to suit your project.
We also have two fab sponsors :-

Please snag either blinkie   

For my project this week, I've used the same technique as Paula has demonstrated in her wonderful and easy to follow Tutorial.

For the technique have a look at Paula's Tutorial. My materials were:
Astrolux card in yellow
Various Ranger alcohol inks including metallic
Blending alcohol Ranger

Be advised - the alcohol inks dry VERY fast on Astrolux! So work quickly!

Look forward to seeing your entries over on the blog!
