Salted Sky

CAS Watercolour Challenge for this month is Salted background, so much fun to try if you've never done it.  The challenge has a few links for you to follow if you need some instructions but basically you throw salt (any type) one very wet watercolour and wait and see what happens.  The tough part is the waiting because it has to completely dry before you brush/scrape off the salt.






Card Recipe
Stamps: both from Ali Express (so no manufacturer name)
Paper: 140lb Watercolour, Linen White, black
