Technique Tuesday - Salty

Welcome once again the the Sparkle N Sprinkle Technique Tuesday! I always love the effect of the technique I am showing today. It is the salt technique.


  1. white glossy card stock
  2. multi-colored ink pad in blues and purples
  3. salt -- I used sea salt in a grinder
  4. brayer
  5. water spritzer
  6. heat gun 9 ( optional )
Brayer color on your glossy card stock.

Spritz the card well with water.

Sprinkle the wet card with salt.

Let dry or use a heat gun a little to speed up the drying.  Then wipe off the salt with your hand or paper towel.

You will end up with a sea looking effect. I tried this technique using matte card stock, but I like the effect better on the glossy card stock.
I hope you enjoyed the technique today. Please  check back next Tuesday to see a new one. Have a great day!


Sparkle N Sprinkle products used:
  1. Clarence T Crab
  2. Florida Beach glitter
