Watercolor 101 challenge

I recently found out about a brand new challenge - Watercolor 101. I really want to get better at watercolor techniques, so I am hoping to be able to join the challenge each week. 
This week the theme is watercolor and salt. I have tried this once or maybe twice before and it's lots of fun. However somehow today my card didn't turn out as nice as I hoped it would. I also wish I had used a brighter orange.

I guess it makes a nice fall-themed Birthday card.

I used hubby's Grumacher Deluxe watercolor paints, regular table salt and painter's tape for masking off the edges. The flower stamp is from a Penny Black clear acrylic stamp set - Allegro. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps - Simple Everyday Greetings. I used black archival ink for the flowers and sentiment. To finish it off I spritzed it with glimmer mist for some sparkle, but it's hard to see in the photo.


Thanks for visiting! 


PS: This is my second post for today. If you'd like to see my card created with my new gelli arts plate and some stamps from JFF please scroll down or click here.
