WATERCOLOR & SALT

The other day Betsy Veldman did post about using colored salt with watercolors to create a background.  I had tried just salt before but never colored and it intrigued me and so had a go.  Used some copic ink refills to color some coarse salt in blues and greens.  After doing a wet on wet background, added the salt and let it do its work.  Really wasn't sure if the alcohol inked salt would work, but it did a good job - no problem at all.


Die cut a frame for the salted piece, added the sentiment and the flower and done.  

Thanks for stopping by - have a good weekend.

  1. Beautiful card Betty. Love that flower its one of my favorite sets and as soon as those Valentines are done I can't wait to get the flower stamps out. I'm going to have to try that salt technique I think I have some coarse grains in the kitchen. Great inspiration.
