Island Indigo Serene Silhouettes

Wouldn't you know that when the sun is shining bright and the sky is amazingly blue, I make a card that looks cloudy and rainy?  I know, but at least the cloudy is on the card and not out my window.  I had never tried the Polished Stone technique and while I didn't have the cotton balls (I used q-tips) and it is not exactly like the directions stated, I think it turned out rather well.  I can't wait until I do have the cotton balls to be able to give more color to it.  I did use Island Indigo and Pool Party re-inkers but it is a bit hard to see that.  Yes, the cotton balls are on my current shopping list.

Stamp Set:  Serene Silhouettes; Inks:  Island Indigo, Pool Party, StazOn Jet Black;  Card Stock:  Naturals White, Island Indigo, Glossy White; Accessories & Tools:  Cloudy Day Embossing Folder, Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack/1/4" Pool Party Ribbon, alcohol, q-tips

There is no sentiment stamped on it as of yet.  I'm not sure what I want it to say.  It will either be a get well, thinking of you or possibly a sympathy card.  It will more than likely have some other dimension added to it before I'm fully done with it.  For now, it was simply to try a technique I'd not used before.
