Another of the techniques featured in Craft Stamper recently that I decided to have a go at is Trish Latimer's embossing with salt. I have to admit that I found it difficult to get the salt to stick... I had to use at least two layers of the white embossing powder first and then found it worked better if I reheated and added salt on one small area at a time. Eventually I managed to get a reasonable result and here are a couple of cards that I made. I embossed a flourish and a bird die cut from grunge paper (both dies by Tim Holtz), adding the colour afterwards. The flower on the red card was also made using a Tim Holtz die.
