Under the Sea!

Today's card was an experiment to see how rock salt affected a watercolour card sprayed with Dylusions. I loved the result, and as it looked a bit like underwater, I used my new stamp set from Kaisercraft called 'Coastal Escape' with Memento 'tuxedo black'. It didn't show up very well so I went over it with my white Sharpie paint pen(love this pen) I stamped the seahorse on a scrap, coloured with copics and clear embossed, then layered him with mounting foam

That's a really stunning background Glennis, I always love the intensity of Dylusions and the colours you have used make a super underwater backdrop to your stamping. Many thanks for joining us at Penny Black and More challenge.

I just used some rock salt that I had in my pantry. I will be trying this again, it is such fun as you don't know what results you will get

Brilliant Glennis, love the colours, Loll has been using rock salt with her brushos too, I'd have tried it except I have none, it's going on my shopping list methinks.
