Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.

101 : Water-Color : 102 - 1st Assignment Salt Water (color)

I just found this challenge blog this week http://101watercolor.blogspot.com.au/

on Victoria Lavender's blog http://victorialavender.blogspot.com.au/

The first assignment is Salt Water (color) and they have two sections 101 beginners and intermediate and 102 intermediate and advanced.

This is the very first time I have used this technique and I thank Victoria for the YOUTUBE links

I tried to follow the video Tattered Angels - Kosher Salt Technique by Erin Bassett but just used table sea salt as that is all I had here.


Also I didn't have any watercolour card so have just used white card I buy from Office Works.
Sprayed with Ranger Dylusion sprays, shook salt over and left overnight to dry.  Today wiped off the salt and stamped with Indigo Blue clear stamps I received last week with Australian Simply Cards magazine No71.  Stamped an extra butterfly and layered on top.  Added rhinestones and layered all onto pink card.

I would also like to enter this card into Word Art Wednesday

  1. So beautiful! I've not tried this technique, and I love Dylusions sprays, so will definitely be taking some table salt down to the craft room to try this. You did a super look with this! Well done! Will try to get back to check out your links too. Right now trying to play catchup.TFS & Hugs

  3. Hi Margaret, Splendid! Tablesalt is just as good. It's whatever makes you feel good. It's your first time? So cool! It's a cute card and I hope you visit each week to pick up a new idea or just to practice for fun. Cheers, Victoria Lavender 101: Watercolor
