Adding Salt to Ink

Hi There!

Day 8 of Clean and Simple Card Making 2 was a fun one! We 
learned three new inking techniques that all have amazing results. I chose to play with the ink and salt technique which Kristina shared with us in a video.
 

Absolutely Fabulous by bdengler4 (Barb)


I used Weathered Wood, Faded Jeans and Stormy Sky Distress Inks. It's pretty cool to watch the salt react to the wet, inky paper!

I'm planning on enjoying a quiet Saturday with some crafty time to catch up with Day 9 and 10 of class.

Thanks for the visit!
