sea salt tag

Good afternoon :) I have a little tag to share today...I totally moved it around on various papers for about an hour trying to make it into a card!!....but decided   I like it best just as a tag/bookmark :)


Here is a close-up again to show the sea salt and liquid technique I used. You can actually still see a few grains of salt I didn't brush off well enough :)


I found this video on You Tube that shows this technique.

I can't wait to try it on glossy paper like she did in the video! Someone in the comments also mentioned that coarse sand does the opposite reaction...off to find some sand :)
I am going to enter this in Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: What do you say?  and into Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes


Hope you are having a great day!! Hugs TRace
