It's my favorite...

Happy Thursday!!
It's that time of the week for the Twisted Thursday Challenge at The Outlawz! This week we want to see your favorite technique. You can check out the challenge here and also see the other DT samples for the challenge.
I have several techniques that I love but I think my favorite is "Polished Stone". SCS has a great tutorial on the polished stone technique here. You can also use alcohol ink refills for this technique instead of the regular reinkers and rubbing alcohol. You would follow the exact same step in the tutorial except the step of adding the rubbing alcohol to the cotton ball.
I used the alcohol ink refills for my polished stone background. I let the inks dry completely then stamped the silhouette image with versamark and heat embossed it with Zinger Brown Sugar embossing powder.
The silhouette is from the Butterfly Kisses stamp set by The Crafts Meow and the sentiment is from the same set. The frame around the sentiment is from their Timeless Tags stamp set.

What is your favorite technique?
I hope you will play along with us this week and share your favorite technique with us!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your day!!
