Polished Stone Hummingbird

Good morning!

Jessica here popping in to share a quick card I created using the Joyful Heart Sweet 'n Sassy stamp set.  Korin has drawn such a lovely image with the hummingbird and flowers that it is perfect for the polished stone technique.  

I used Ranger's Alcohol inks (one shade of red & the silver) but any dye reinkers will work.  Apply some ink to a cotton ball or Ranger's Inkssentials felt and pounce up and down on glossy card stock until you achieve the results that you are happy with.  (Tip: To help blend and soften the colors, add a bit of rubbing alcohol or Ranger's Alcohol blending solution.)

Happy stamping!
