Oh my other challenges are almost complete so I return with another polished stone.  This one has another use of the emboss resist-ghost like effect. 

Tim's description of this technique in chemistry 103 indicated that this technique does not work so well on Ranger's glossy paper because it is porous.  I remember several people had a hard time with the technique during a challenge at 2Peas so perhaps used different brands of glossy cardstock. I know at that time I was using a quality clay coated glossy paper from an online store that is now out of business. 

Tim also demonstrated that Ranger's Hickory Smoked Gray Archival ink makes a clearer image than archival black.  I really wish such changes on the use of products would be available on an on-going post on Ranger's website.

PS-I also learned now there is a Snow Cap Mixative which will lighten some of the darker alcohol inks to more of a pastel color.

Heidi, I had so much fun tonight!  Thanks for the push to get the alcohol inks out again.  Once they were out, I had trouble quitting! I'd start to clean up and then think about another color combo.  I made 8 polished stone backgrounds and a couple stripes and plaids just for fun.  I used glossy cardstock.  Only after I cleaned up (thanks to your question on the Go Fish thread, you prompted me to clean up after this project!), did I look at what everyone else has done.  Now I'd like to try yupo at some point, but that would probably occupy another whole night!  I'll wait till I finish some challenges.  I will post links tomorrow.  Thanks for this challenge!

I really enjoyed looking at all of the backgrounds and projects!  All of you have been very productive!  Beautiful results.

I love the color suggestions on the enchanted gallery site!  Great link!  I also watched part of Jennifer McGuire's Thinking Inking video as a refresher. 

I gave the colors I used, but now I remember I added some Snow Cap on one, but can't remember which! Maybe the blues?
Here are my backgrounds :
fall and bright
blues
greens
purples

Lots to play with!  Thanks Heidi!

So many of you have posted backgrounds (and lots of them) and projects!  I knew I would get myself into a pickle for counting the number of entries for the RAK, but I will take some time to figure it out.

I am so pleased that everyone is enjoying themselves! I was hesitant to offer this challenge because I thought you might not want to drag out your alcohol inks, so yay!

Sarah, I love your Halloween cards, you have some neat stamps to pair with your backgrounds.

Yankee, I just love your new cute stamps!!!  What are they? I have never seen them before anywhere.

Jan reminded me of that technique of stamping the archival ink and then rubbing it off (although I tried it tonight and it didn't really work for some reason, i think I had A LOT of AI on my background.)

Stampwilly has the most beautiful peacock background and stamp combo!

I am so thankful that you all are able to participate in my challenge!

I used my backgrounds to stamp flowers, cute them out and punch out leaves!

Oh wow, we are at the last day of the fest. All your projects are lovely!  You all are really good at the polished stone technique.  You have through the night to post your projects, I will start taking a count of them on Monday morning.

I made a card for Jan's Holiday Stylin challenge and your challenge using one of my polished stone backgrounds and another piece of glossy cs that I swiped off some AI on from another polished stone background (it is now church windows)!

Here is my Holiday Stylin card with a polished stone sky.

Thanks for the challenge, Heidi!  It has been a fun week.  I have the beginnings of one more card that will use my green polished stone ... but that will have to wait till another day!

Awesome that you gals got a couple more projects done at the last minute.  They are lovely.

A little later this morning I will start figuring out how many entries everyone has and then will choose the rak winner!

Thanks to everyone for playing along!
