Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with a very CAS watercolour card and this great branches with bird stamp. Perfect for a quick and easy card.
I tore some masking tape to create a frame around a piece of water colour card. I sprayed two colours of Nuance powders (Aquamarine and Chartreuse) on the surface. While it was still wet I sprinkled salt over the it to create speckles of interest. I lightly stamped the background with a script stamp using Ranger Archival Ink, then stamped the branches with the birds over the top in Versafine Clair.  

the close up shows the speckles from the salt.

I love this Christine. I had forgotten how much fun it is to use salt over watercolors.
