This weekend I was inspired by a tutorial I found on Splitcoast stampers to make "swirled glass" as the feature of the card. You can see my first results experimenting:
It really is a very easy technique. What you do is take a bit of acetate sheet (overhead transparency) and pour a small amount of crystal effects or other similar product on it. Then you squeeze a few drops of various re-inkers on it. Here I used some of my Encore gold refill ink with a couple of regular organgy brown colours. I swirled the ink around in the crystal effects with a q-tip and let it dry. Then when it is dry, on the reverse side I stamped the top image with staz on black ink. I layered this over a piece of white cardstock that I'd stamped some trees on in brown ink.
You can find the tutorial by following this link:

I'd be interested to see what you come up with using this technique :-)
