Still Addinktive Spot That Stamp Set - By the Tide

Happy Wednesday Everyone,
This week at Still addINKtive we are looking at Stampin' Up's By The Tide and By The Seashore for the Spot That Stamp Set Challenge. Don't forget to make a new card or link one you have already made so we have a comprehensive list of ideas.
I wanted to try the Salt Technique for the background. There are two different ways you can do this technique.
1. Use glossy card, brayer the colours on and spray with a mister and then sprinkle it with rock salt.
2. Use watercolour paper, spray it extensively, so the ink will run when you dab it on with a paintbrush, then let it soak up the colour and water and dry off a bit and sprinkle it with rock salt.  I wet the paintbrush before picking up the colour and washed it off after I used each one.  I have added a photo of the samples I made further down in my post.   I used the brayered glossy card for my card today.
