I pulled my A Long Time Ago stamp set the other day. Thought I would play around some more with the galaxy technique that Jen Rzasa taught in Online Card Classes' Watercolor for Cardmakers.
The last time I made one of these cards I omitted the salt portion of the technique because I was worried that the texture would make it hard to emboss on.
Well, there's more than one way to skin a cat, so this time I just did the embossing first and it resisted the watercolor. Duh. I don't know why I didn't think of that last time.
I also went a little less colorful on this one, I was aiming this at a guy, so instead of using a whole bunch of colors in the background/base coat, I stuck with blues. I also wanted to try using my Derwent Inktense pencils rather than the Kuretake watercolors. They worked just as well, so it's nice to know I have lots of options.
I like both techniques, salted and unsalted, and will definitely continue to utilize both.
Hope that you are having a great week, and Happy October!
