Watercolor + Salt ...Card #2

I really did have fun experimenting with adding salt to wet watercolors on paper! Here is another color scheme I tried (my first card is in the post below).

I think this one was a bit dry so the salt did not react as well as with the blues on the first card...but I still like it. It makes a softly textured background that somehow has "depth".

Other ingredients used:
Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink
Stampabilities "Get Well" stamp
Simon Says Stamp! "Look for the Miracles" stamp set
Copic and MEPXY markers
Kaisercraft yellow rhinestones


As always, thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful watercolored background with your subtle salt splotches. Your stamped bouquet is so beautifully colored with your Copics. TFS Sandie. Hugs.

Can definitely see the salt reaction in your background, Sandie. Great job with the technique, and a beautiful card. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!

Ooh, I love this soft background, Sandie! These flowers are so pretty with it and the sentiment a perfect fit! Such a cheerful card! Thanks so much for sharing with us again at CAS Watercolour!

Love the greens of the background and love the way the sentiment slightly overlaps the flower - a beautiful card. Thanks for joining us at CAS Watercolour!

I know of accomplished watercolor artists that use salt regularly in their works of art. I bet you will find a lot of special effects can be created with it.
