Salted Background Technique: November Card Club

Hi friends! Thanks for visiting me today! I have a fun technique to share that I did with my SE Calgary Stampin' Up! Card Club in November. I've seen quite a few versions of this technique over the years, so needless to say, I have no idea who first invented it. 

Salted Background How To:

  • Using the clear block size of your choice, apply ink to the block by dabbing the ink pad onto the block
  • Be sure to work from lightest to darkest (Lost Lagoon, Island Indigo & Night of Navy used here)
  • Spritz the block several times with water
  • 'Stamp' block onto watercolour paper 
  • Before the paper becomes dry, sprinkle with salt
  • Spritz paper with water
  • Allow to dry (or use the heat tool to speed up this process)

I love how the salt plays with the colours in the ink. Everyone in the group had backgrounds that were completely different, but all were stunning.

Thanks for the visit!
Happy Stampin'
