Clean & Simple Card Making 2: Day 8 card

Hello again,

I am so happy to have another card made for class.  This time I tried the "salt" technique that Kristina showed us.  What a fun technique!  My salting is not as apparent as hers, but I think it is because I only had simple table salt instead of sea salt.  I think the finer grains are definitely more subtle.  It is still fun to see the results.

Here is my card:


For some reason this technique just spoke "sympathy card" to me.   I decided to use Dusty Concord Distress ink for the watercolor effect.  I did this on a piece of watercolor paper(Pro Art) using my Tim Holtz water brush.  I just used plain old table salt after watercoloring the paper - just sprinkled it on.   My greetin is from Clearly Wordsworth "Comfort" stamp set.  I stamped it with Versa Mark and then heat embossed it with Stampendous Detail White embossing powder.  I punched the dove(Martha Stewart) out of white cardstock(CTMH) and put through my Xyron sticker maker.  I then poured glitter(CTMH) over it and mounted it on the purple piece with foam dot.   I used a white card(CTMH) base and embossed it with an embossing folder(Sizzix).  I attached the purple piece with foam adhesive to the card base.  And there you have it. Thanks for stopping by.
