Here is my card for the 'From the Kitchen' challenge. I used the salted bkg. technique with Sea Salt. I find that works better then regular salt as it is a bit more coarse and lifts more colour off the paper.
I masked my card front, painted on Distress inks, sprinkled on salt and let dry. I removed the mask and stamped.
thanks for looking,

Not only are we gallery neighbors, but our minds, as far as design, were on the same track.....just mirror-imaged. Made me smile, chuckle and say, "I know why she is my friend"! : ) Lovely card in beautiful colors with your beautiful salted bg. Hugs, mf

Beautiful, calm, and serene! I love your blues and the soft edges of the panel. The image is very evocative of old fields. Though maybe you wouldn't find it there! :-) I think old fields are such fascinating places. Love your card Karen!

Oh Karen, now this is the effect I would LOVE to achieve with my salt. I get it a bit if I use sea-salt flakes, but not anything like as effective as this. And I have always loved the Stampendous agapanthus - one of my very early stamp purchases. Thank you for cooking up such a beautiful card.
