Polished Stone Springtime Foils Specialty DSP

SAB is almost over, so I will likely feature these products
for the next several posts.  In fact, the rest of my cards 
might all include the FREE (with $50 purchase) 
Springtime Foils Specialty DSP
(SAB2 on page 3).  I love this stuff!!

In this example, my plan was to use the Polished Stone
technique.  I took ink pads and dragged both Peekaboo Peach
and Flirty Flamingo across the DSP.  I used these two
In Colors (annual p 184), because they will retire in May.
Then I took a cotton ball, lightly soaked with rubbing
alcohol, and created "splotches".  The rubbing alcohol
removes or moves the ink, creating lightened spots.
This technique worked REALLY WELL on the glossy surface of
the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP.  Happily, it looks
like spring/Easter time.

The Silver foil sentiment comes from the Celebrate You
Thinlits Dies (SAB p 17).   I could have dressed this up
more, by adding additional accessories, but opted to 
leave it "plain".

This looks great, Jackie! I love that technique, and it's perfect on this paper. Looks almost like bokeh, too! I'm really enjoying your ideas for this DSP.

I haven't tried this technique yet (gasp!) - before reading your description, I thought you had done the Bokeh technique :) This card looks great, Jackie!
