I thought I would try the Salt Watercolor technique to create the background for my Beautiful You lady, using the shades from the "watercolor/ gold flecked" dsp I chose to use for my lady's clothing, the sentiment fishtail flag, and the strip layer under the card front. I wanted my lady to have pink legs and arms, so started my watercoloring in the area they would fall when the image was stamped.
