Want to see what NOT to do with salt and watercolor?
I wanted to try using two kinds of salt on one piece.
I stamped and heat embossed these beautiful flowers that my dear friend, Loll
gave me for my birthday.
After adding the watercolor with lots of water, I sprinkled
Fine Himalayan Pink salt on the green and
table salt on the pink.
But I was too heavy handed.
Salt is definitely better used in moderation!
It actually took almost all the color out of the flowers
so I had to add some more back in.
Well, I hated to throw this away.
So I fussy cut the flowers out.
The die is now on my "need to get" list!
Here's the finished product...
I hope you'll join in the fun at
There are some amazing entries in the gallery!
Challenge is open until the 24th.
And I think I can take this to the Dare to Get Dirty Challenge
at Splitcoaststampers. This challenge is for Fan Club Members.
