Heart of Christmas - week 27 Final week!

For the last Heart of Christmas blog hop I have a card to show you which uses the Salted Background technique.
It’s as simple as applying a colour wash to watercolour paper,  and while it’s still wet sprinkle cooking salt lightly over the top. Allow to dry and brush off the excess salt.
The card was finished with one of the dies from Hometown Greeting edgelit dies. The greeting comes from the coordinating stamp set called Hearts Come Home.

 To see the rest of this weeks participants head over to Claire Daly’s blog.

Happy Stampin,

  6. I've never heard of this technique Rachel and it is so effective. You've created a lovely card!

  7. Lovely share! Missed the Christmas party arranged by my best friend recently. Booked one of the highly recommended San Francisco event venues for the celebration. Everyone praised about the dinner and desserts. Cake was amazing as had it the next day. Will definitely see the pretty pictures clicked by the photographer.
