Picture Perfect with watercolour sea salt background



I really should start writing the recipes down for my projects as soon as I’ve made them, especially when it’s something with lots of different colours on, like this one. I confess I am guessing the ink colours but I’m confident they’ll be correct!

So… beginning with some watercolour paper and some reinkers, I painted broad swathes of ink (Old Olive and Calypso Coral) and, while it was still wet, I sprinkled the ink with coarse seasalt. This creates the unusual starburst/floral effect.

The flowers are stamped as follows:

1. Blushing Bride
2. Calypso Coral stamped off
3. Calypso Coral

The leaves are stamped as follows:

3.  (yes, I started with 3 - I find it easier) Old Olive stamped off
2.  Old Olive
1. Mossy Meadow


I think that’s all you need to know.
