I liked day 8 so much I stayed up late to try another new technique.  This card was such fun - who knew that salt into the craft room could be as useful as it is in the kitchen but a lot more exciting!  Some distress inks, some water, salt and watercolour paper and a little magic appears :-)  I thought the outcome looked a little like the distant galaxies my hubby shows me on the sky at night so I took the card down that theme.    I finished the card with some embossed stars, some stars die cut from white vinyl and glitter card and a sentiment from Mama Elephant stamped in stazon onto a washi tape banner with a couple of hearts for an extra colour pop.


  1. Beautiful, Tara! I love how you created the night sky using the salt technique!

  2. Absolutely love this! Love the night sky and all the stars and the sentiment is perfect!

  3. What a fantastic technique, Tara - totally original! Love the embossing and sweet hearts too!

    Have a lovely weekend sweetie!

  4. Haven't tried this yet but your salted card looks fantastic... Galaxies indeed :0)

  5. I love this - the salting makes such a gorgeous background, and I really like the way you've included all the lovely stars! Fabulous work!
