Clean and Simple Cardmaking 2 - day 8

I will have to do a couple of catch-up posts for class - I've been busy making wedding invitations, so have not done my homework for the past few days! Oops!

But I'm catching up now, using Kristina Werner's technique of adding grains of salt to a wet piece of inked watercolour paper - results in a very cool effect.

 The cute little wood veneer stars from Studio Calico looked lovely as they were, but I couldn't resist adding some star dust Stickles as well :)
