Friday Fail (AKA Tips)

I was trying to make a card for Adelle's VSN Challenge to use the salted background technique.  I had read on another site that you could use watercolor paper for this technique.  Since I had the first attempt from my second Hammock Parts card already done, I decided to give it a go.

Yeah, it SO does NOT work!  All you get is a muddy image and salt stuck to your watercolor paper.  Stick with the glossy paper.  I will be giving it yet another go... I think I will still use this image.  Perhaps, that's just the stubbornness in me?  Yeah, probably!
I got a few questions on how to clean your stencil if you use the Copic airbrush system because baby wipes weren't working for them, which meant that they were stuck with ink on their stencil.  The answer is simple - use the right tool for the job.

Copic Various Ink will take it right off.  I squirt a little directly on the stencil and wipe with a paper towel.
I hope my Friday Tips help you in your crafting!  I'm off to make yet another salted background... Have a great weekend!
