CAS Watercolour August 2017 CASE-ing Bonnie

Hello friends.  Using SALT is the challenge this month over at CAS Watercolour, and I have a 2nd card to share after seeing Bonnie's GORGEOUS cards (HERE), where she mixed her salt with water and then used it as a wash on her wet, watercoloured cards.  They were so pretty that I just had to try it for myself!


I started by embossing with a Penny Black stamp (First Blush) with black embossing powder, and then watercoloured with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors in red and pink.  While it was still wet I used a wash of the water and table salt mixed together on the panel.  Not a whole lot of control using this technique, so the crystals do their magic where THEY want to go!  I still love how this turned out though!!  I mounted my panel to a white card base and also added a white die cut frame using PTI's Infinity Frames.  A simple black banner embossed in white with the sentiment from PTI's Winter Woods and a pink enamel dot finished off this simple card.  Thanks so much Bonnie for inspiring me to try this fun and beautiful technique...I loved it!!  :0)


This challenge goes till the 24th and there is so much inspiration from the DT and the gallery to inspire you to try these techniques using salt and your watercolours.  You can check it all out right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
