The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop Week #11!

Have I told you yet how much of a super time I've had joining in on Terry's "The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop"! Never would I have imagined 13 weeks of so much fun. You really need to create and join in on the fun!

I taught a technique class last month and I showed my class how to create a background using Epsom Salts. The card they made had an Elegant Eggplant Cardstock background and I demo'd this background to them in class using Tangerine Tango:

If  you click on any of the photos, you'll get a close-up view of the texture. This technique is so cool. Just mix equal amounts of boiling water and Epsom Salts, brush on, let dry and voila:

  • Cardstock: Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White
  • Stamps: Wicked Cool, Googly Ghouls, Perfectly Preserved

  1. LOVE the technique! Great combination of all the stamp sets! They work so well together!

  2. I've never heard or seen of the Epsom salt technique. It looks very cool. I love the bats in the jar! And the two goofy bat with googly eyes. They're so cute. Thanks for the wonderful post. I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  3. Very cool "bat" card and I love it all! Smiles, Elizabeth

  4. Interesting technique Debbie. It actually looks like part of the spider web in the one photo. Cute card - looks like those bats on the outside are trying to figure out how to break the others out of the jar.


Thanks so much for visiting me today. I appreciate your comments!
