Morning. Today I am being inspired by the challenge at Splitcoast called "From the Kitchen". For this challenge we are asked to make a card using something from the kitchen. I decided to make a background using ink and salt.
I began by masking the edges of my card front and painted on Distress inks.
(Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves)
I made sure the paper was wet then I sprinkled on some Sea Salt and let it dry. I found that using Sea Salt worked better then using regular Table Salt as it has a much more coarse texture and lifts more colour off the paper.
When dry I stamped the flowers from Stampendous using Stazon Black ink. I stamped the sentiment and embossed it in white but it looked a bit lost so using my stamp positioner, I stamped the sentiment again with the Black Stazon ink.
Also adding my card to these challenges:
CAS on Sunday- FLOWERS
Shopping Our Stash- GETTIN INKY
(my oldest inks are Distress inks)
Tip Top Tuesday- FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBO
(my favs are blues and purples)
Through the Craft Room Door- ANYTHING GOES
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
