Good morning all. I hope you have enjoyed or are enjoying your weekend.
Yesterday I played with watercolours and salt. I've been meaning to try this technique for a while now.
For my first attempt I used watercolours and rock salt. The background has turned out quite different and I will post what I make with that later. The next one I used normal table salt which gave a very different effect but I think I may have had the paper too wet. Back to the drawing board with that one.
Finally, I thought.. why not use salt ITSELF on my card. Here is what I came up with -
I started by creating my background using Brilliant Red, Orange and Black brushos. I LOVE these colours. For the large panel I combined the Red and Orange and then made a smaller panel with the black.
My next steps were -
* Once the panel was dry, I coated it with gloss gel
* I sprinkled the table salt all over the panel
* Sealed it all in with a gloss spray sealant
* Die cut the word Happy from my black panel
*Cut a small strip and embossed Birthday in white.
I adhered the Happy and Birthday strip with glossy accents. With everything on the bottom panel, this was the best way to get them to stick properly.
Here is a close up of the salt -
I have used one of the sentiments from the HLS Bold Birthday Sentiments set.
