HYCCT1527BONUS The Secret of the Sea
Hi Again Friends!
This card was created for the Splitcoaststampers’ “Hope You Can Cling To” HYCCT1527BONUS Shannon’s “Create A Cure” Challenge to create a card using the Salted Background Technique.
I hope you have had a chance to visit the above gallery- terrific inspiration from all!!
To create this card:
Using Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Stains- Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire and Peacock Feathers onto a craft mat, lay a piece of Glossy White cardstock in to the ink,
Spritz the ink with water to keep it moist and using a salt grinder, grind Sea Salt over the background, lightly mist with water (if needed).
Either allow the salted panel to dry naturally ( or heat with the Heat Tool) and once dry, brush the salt off and trim the panel.
De-static with the Embossing Buddy® , ink the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) The Sea with Versamark™, stamp over the background panel, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Mount the panel onto Basic Black cardstock and mount onto the Whisper White card base.
Stamp the sentiment with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White and cut out with the Big Shot™ and the My Favorite Things™ (MDT) Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner Dies.
Add a few stars with the Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker.
Mount the sentiment to the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
