Tag Tuesday - Summer

This is my summer themed tag for this week's challenge at Tag Tuesday. I experimented with a technique I read about on the Tattered Angels educator's blog where you spray Glimmer Mist onto glossy paper, sprinkle kosher salt on it and let it air dry. It does take awhile to dry - I think the instructions recommended overnight - and it creates interesting mottled patterns and a little bit of texture in spots. Stamp is from The Queen's Dresser Drawers.

Penny, a real dash of summer on your tag. Salt creates such beautiful effects, I like to use it on watercolour paper.
Your tutorial over at Gingersnap Creations was so helpful and such lovely cards. I cannot wait to see the other tutorials and the cat wasn't edited!! Lynne x
