GDT for Crafting by Design!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I'm very excited to be posting today as the Guest Designer for Crafting by Design!

The challenge is 'Silhouettes' and I have a couple of cards to share with you...
These came together very quick because I had the backgrounds done already! When playing with watercolors or Distress inks to create a background I usually make several at a time, put them in a folder and then they are ready to use for another card! :)

For the card on the left- I used the 'Salt Technique' with watercolors and coarse sea salt, I stamped the Hero Arts Starburst image in VersaFine Onyx ink and heat embossed with clear powder. The green background was created using Mowed Lawn Oxide DI and Rangers Old School Number stencil. The Agapanthus is from Stampendous and the sentiments are from Tim Holtz.

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to Crafting by Designs to join the fun... I'll see you tomorrow.

Both of your cards are amazing. How ironic that I also used a salt technique for my background today. I love how yours turned out and you had far better luck stamping and adding the clear embossing powder. This is a real jewel. It's perfect for this fortnight's challenge at Try it on Tuesday.
