Sweet & Salty

This card is for the Less is More challenge: Opposites Attract.

I admit, I was stymied at first, but I finally got the idea of doing sweet & salty. It was fun trying to figure out how to represent that and what sentiment to use. Here’s my card:

You Have Great Taste | by karen @ carefree creations

Since the images I wanted to use were a mix of outline and solid, I decided that doing a no-line coloring technique would work best. I’ve decided I enjoy watercoloring more than copics, so I broke out my distress inks.

I stamped the images with Antique Linen (the softest color I have), then went back in with my colors. I needed a little bit of accent – so I added chocolate chip sprinkles (brown beads) and salt (white beads).

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. Such a clever idea for opposites! It’s a really cute design too with the watercolouring and little sprinkles added. Great idea! Thanks for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  2. This is totally terrific Karen! The salt and sweet theme is perfect for opposites and your beads for sprinkles and salt was so clever! Love how the images look so soft – must be the combination of the lovely watercolouring and the no line colouring techniques. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
