Sprinkle of salt

The Sprinkle of Salt challenge worked out much better than I'd hoped.

I had to use Distress inks which I think might have amped up the results somewhat but I had made the paper really quite damp to start with so that might explain it.
Once it was all dry I used one of Heather Nichols's design tips and overstamped with the postmarks background stamp and some white ink. I tried all sorts of ways of adding the sentiment but they all took away from how pretty the ink effect was so I ended up just using the Birthday die and replacing the die cut with the same word stamped in the lilac ink. It's very subtle but I love the effect.
If I wasn't hours behind the pace I would also make something with the word I cut out as it looks really lovely.
