This week we have a technique based challenge over at Back to Basics and Beyond … salt technique.
I haven’t used salt with my watercolours as a background very often so it was fun to experiment and ended up with three panels…
I cut them down and used each in a different way. One I used an indigo Blu stamp set and heat embossed the fish and the sentiment.
I then added a little more colour onto the fish using distress oxide and my waterbrush.
Then I added layers under the panel in contrasting colours including the ribbon and the pearls.
Now the second card I kept quite simple with a silhouette stamp and added gold edging and some patterned paper and then sequins to finish.
Then the final one I used as a piece of actual patterned paper.
I added the stamped image and some other layers of patterned paper. I added the kraft tag to balance the kraft in the coffee cup colouring.
Love all three of these cards… And love being reminded of what a lovely effect the addition of salt is to the watercolour background.
Can’t wait to see how everyone else used the salt technique in their creations! Here is the blog.
