I checked in over at Stamping 411 (love that site) and knew that today wouldn't pass without me making a card for this sketch.
Here is my attempt. I decided to try a new technique out that I saw on Susan Timmermans site. It's using Epsom Salts, boiling water and a paint brush. I'll let you go over to Susans site to find out more details. Needless to say I saw this technique this morning and thought I'd paint up a few pieces of scrap cardstock. The first piece that was dry was Pacific Point.... not my favourite colour at all.... but I decided that I would go with it.
This card is very 'clean' for me, as I don't generally leave a lot of white space. I am quite happy with the result and it really is quite stunning IRL.
