Supply Savvy ATC day 4

Orange, yellow and green art card with layers of corrugated card, lace and thread topped with a tiny tag with two painted butterflies on it.

Another technique that I’ve previously only tried with watercolour paints: using rock salt to add texture. And, like the cling film technique, it didn’t turn out as well as it might have. At least this time I’m pretty sure I know what went wrong, I simply didn’t use enough water, so the effect is more subtle.

I painted a tiny tag using the same colours as the background and layered it with some thread and scraps of corrugated card and lace.
