Fossil Stone technique

My picture didn't come out good enough to really show you what this technique looks like. But, I like the card so I decided to show it to you anyway! The "splotched" lighter background piece is the piece with the technique. The basics of the technique are pretty simple. You need a plastic file folder or one of those sheet protector things. If you use the sheet protector you will want to trim two fo the edges so that you can open it up like a file folder. You will also need 2 coordinating colors of reinkers, 2 pieces of glossy white (or light colored) cardstock and a brayer. That's it! So, you open up the file folder/page protector and put a few drops of one of the inks on one side and a few drops of the other ink on the other side. Then close the file folder/page protector and "smush" them together. Air pockets in the "smushing" is's even really good! Place your two pieces of glossy cardstock back to back with the glossy sides facing out. Open the file folder/page protector and place the cardstock on one side and close the file folder/page protector. Use your brayer to roll over the outside of the file folder/page protector. Keep rolling until you like the look of the ink on the cardstock. Open up the file folder/page protector and take out the cardstock. Set is aside to let it air dry. You now have enough to make TWO cards or other projects! Here are the items I used to make this card.
