Sewn Tear Card

This was an interesting card to make.
The green marble looking paper is
the polished stone technique.
That is alcohol inks on glossy paper.
It can also be done with rubbing alcohol and
dye ink re-inkers.
Metallic gold, silver, bonze and copper are available
in Krylon Leafing Pens.
The Ranger Alcohol Inks with the accompanying
blender is by far the easiest product that I have
found to use.
Talc your polished stone before stamping. You will
have to use embossing powder if you have used metallics
in your polished stone as the they "float" over the inks.
When you are done heating the embossing powder
and it has had ample time to cool, lightly buff the paper
with a soft cloth to bring back
the lovely glossy polished stone look.
A fine metallic thread was used to sew the "tear".
