Thinking of you...salt technique resist

This was a fun one! It's another challenge card. The challenge was to use the salt technique for the background. I never seem to get really dramatic results with the salt, but this one was at least visible. I took the SU kind thoughts stencil and versamarked it onto a piece of glossy cardstock. Then I heat embossed it with white ink for a resist when doing the salt technique. Then I applied the colors and the salt. This is what I came up with. It pretty well stands on its own. So I only added ribbon and a layered butterfly for accents. The sentiment at the bottom is stamped in stazon timber brown. The colors I used are the new in colors melon mambo and crushed curry. Such vibrant colors!
