Beautiful card. I love the background. It is very soft and romantic. Must give this a try.

This is simply beautiful.

So pretty!! This is a cool technique! I have to try this!

TFS!

Yes it was stamped on a label, I cut it out.

Lovely effect with the salt! Thot they were very small birds or b-flys!

Love the ombre coloring!

LOL on the butterfly rak! Is it really a label piece? Looks a bit like one of my CFs.

Happy V-Day, pal!

This is so pretty! Love the ombré(I think that's what it's called!) effect. Very cool technique with the salt. I need to try that, TFS :-)

Galleries: Stamping, Cardmaking

Background: Painted Roseart watercolors (kid's school supply variety) to watercolor paper. I tried to add a lot of color and blend from pink to red to purple and kept the paper fairly wet, but not puddled. Threw a tiny pinch of table salt and walked away. I learned NOT to try to speed this up with a heat gun! When dry, just dust off the salt.

Butterfly image is stamped onto a label (RAK from looser). Valentine greeting from Anna Griffin.
