Technique Tuesday - Salted Background

Hi everyone, and welcome to this week's Technique Tuesday - Salted Background!
So here we go:

What you will need: Glossy cardstock, water in a spray bottle, reinkers, salt, heat tool, Powder Pal

Spray your Glossy card stock with water

Drop ink onto the wet glossy cardstock

Spray with water again until you are satisfied with the mix of colours

Sprinkle salt all over the card stock. Heat with a heat tool until dry.

Use the brush from the PowderPal to brush all the salt off once dry

Here is the dried and de-salted piece. You can decorate as desired.

Here is the card I made with this piece. Sorry the photo isnt too good!

Have a great day!

Hi Mel

Thanks for the tutorial. I did this for one of your challenges and followed the splitcoast instructions. I wasn't so happy with the result but after seeing your tutorial maybe i didn't use enough ink. anyway thanks again.
