That's no typo in my title! This sweet (no, wait, SALTY) card was inspired by the Your Next Stamp blog challenge. I used their sketch as my inspiration, but as you can see, I put the smaller rectangle behind my front panel instead of in front. I was also inspired by the color part of their challenge, but I don't think I used all of them in this card.
I used YNS's Soy Awesome stamp set for both the image and the sentiment,
while the papers are from last year's Close to My Heart. I colored the
image with my Prismacolor pencils, and blended with mineral spirits. If you haven't tried coloring with these pencils yet, give them a try! You can get some really great blending! The background was done by sponging Hero Arts Unicorn ink through the
Reversed Chicken Wire stencil by The Crafter's Workshop. It gives a
really subtle effect, which was perfect for this card! I kept the card
simple, and finished it off with a bit of Glossy Accents for the eyes.
You can play along with the challenge on the YNS blog.
