This effect was interesting. The idea was to brush the heavy paper with clean water, then put some color on top of it, then using tweezers, add chunks for rock salt until it dries. This was my very first one and it didn't turn out too well, but it's amazing how adding a little (happy birthday) embellishment (Birthday Whimsy) and coordinating cardstock can magically turn any old piece of paper into interesting card art.
This lavender wash was done at my first class. (I've had two now.) I stamped the chandelier image and it was not inked up enough on the right side, so I had to cover it with something. With the machine stitching and other bling, it turned out to be a very luxurious looking card. I like it!
