salted backgrounds

the challenge on saturdays workout is to make a background with salt and on Rainbowlady it's try something new.
the technique is new to me and so is the text stamp, well I've had that one for a while but had never used it.

I did mine with Shabby Shutters and Broken China and it did work but I then covered it in one of my new stamps. oops. Truly it's under the trees.
The stamp is from Cornishheritagefarms and I love it.Every time I think well this is the best one yet and then they go and make another scrumptious one.

Wow... Ellen, deze kaart is schitterend. Als ik het goed begrijp, ben jij ook Nederlandse en woon je in Schotland. Ik woon op Tenerife (Canarische Eilanden, Spanje). Dus je mag natuurlijk komen om mijn techniek te leren, maar het is wel een kwestie van geluk. Vooral het juiste papier is belangrijk! Wat leuk dat je naar Zeist komt. Ik zou je graag ontmoeten. Zullen we iets afspreken?
