You need glossy paper a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol and reinker of your choice and to get that silver look use the pearlized silver fox accent ink. Douse your cotton ball in the rubbing alcohol and place 1 or 2 drops of a reinker and a drop or 2 of the accent ink and pounce onto the glossy cardstock. To keep the ink from your hands use a cloths pen for this process. You must allow this to dry and yes in MI it will depend on the weather as to how long it will take to dry. The marina mist card stock use the flower garden embossing folder and was rubbed with a cotton ball that had white craft ink on it. I like to use the black staz on ink for the butterfly image from the Strength and hope stamp set. I love this set since Stampin'Up! is giving $2 for each stamp set sold to the breast cancer reasearch foundation.
