Rolling Stones!!

Just Chicken In... Rolling Stones Technique

I was so excited when I logged on this morning and got a surprise email from a dear friend Alisa!! She was emailing me to congratulate me about the March Stampin Success.... as I read her email I thought "Wow, that was sweet of her... but I have NO idea what she is talking about!" Of course I immediately logged onto the SU website to find out what on earth she was talking about.... and discovered that Stampin Up has featured one of my techniques in this month's issue.... Rolling Stones! I was bummed to see that no photo of my chicken card but hey I am still excited all the same!
Here is the card I shared with Stampin Up at the Stampin Share at Convention 2006.
Card Details
Stamps: Best of Cluck
Card stock: Night of Navy, Lavender Lace, Whisper White, Bashful Blue, and Glossy Card stock
Ink: Basic Black, Night of Navy, Lavender Lace and Bashful Blue Markers, Bashful Blue Lavender Lace and Night of Navy Re-inkers.
Other: Navy Grosgrain Ribbon, Stamp Box (medium size works best), Marbles
Technique Details: This card is the marriage of two fabulous techniques combined into one... I have always loved the look of polished stone but to be very honest never did like the marbled look.. the samples I had seen were very plain behind the marbles and for some the look did not appeal to me. Then I had an original idea for once LOL.... put something behind the marble look. In preparing for a glossy card stock class I decided to play around with the polished stone technique. I used bashful blue, lavender lace and a tiny bit of night of navy. Just as soon as the card stock had dried I threw it into a stamp box with a few marbles and some night of navy re-inker and shook.

Oh I LOVE this technique - THANKS for posting!
I, also, haven't much cared for any of the samples I've seen with just the marble technique so this just adds the perfect accent to the polished stone!

Congrats deserve as much fame and fortune as you can get with this awesome technique! And, personally, I think your card is a WAY better sample than the ones they included in the magazine!!!
