This week at Still addINKtive we are looking at Stampin' Up's By The Tide and By The Seashore for the Spot That Stamp Set Challenge. Don't forget to make a new card or link one you have already made so we have a comprehensive list of ideas.
I wanted to try the Salt Technique for the background. There are two different ways you can do this technique.
1. Use glossy card, brayer the colours on and spray with a mister and then sprinkle it with rock salt.
2. Use watercolour paper, spray it extensively, so the ink will run when you dab it on with a paintbrush, then let it soak up the colour and water and dry off a bit and sprinkle it with rock salt. I wet the paintbrush before picking up the colour and washed it off after I used each one. I have added a photo of the samples I made further down in my post. I used the brayered glossy card for my card today.
