Project 52 weeks of ATC's - Week 49

(Version française ici)
This week, I will show you how to make a "salted background".
Here is my example:
You will need:
  • White, glossy cardstock
  • Distress reinkers, in the colors of your choice
  • water brush
  • Mini Mister filled with water
  • coarse salt (but table salt works too)
  1.  Mist the glossy cardstock using your Mini Mister.
  2. Put a few drops of your chosen colors of Distress inks on the craft sheet or a plastic container.
  3. Using the water brush, pick up some ink and drag it on the wet glossy cardstock. It is not necessary to use a lot of ink, unless you want a darker effect.
  4. Sprinkle with salt.
  5. Let dry.
  6. Once dry, wipe off the salt, carefully to avoid scratching the glossy surface, using a paper towel, a dry, soft paint brush or a rag.
  7. Finish your card.

Please come show us your results on the store forum!
