Salted background

Some SCS friends and I are taking a virtual vacation this summer, complete with weekly challenges inspired by our "travels!" You can learn more, and play along with us, HERE!
I played tour guide this week in Austria. Our challenge this week is to take inspiration from salt, the mineral that gives my favorite Austrian city, Salzburg, its name. For this card, I used the salted background technique. Following the tutorial on SCS, I used artichoke, moss and kiwi
reinkers, then I spritzed the finished, but not quite dry, background with gold glimmer mist which added a cool effect.
Supplies:
Stamps: Unity
Ink: kiwi kiss, always artichoke, mellow moss reinkers, Brilliance graphite black
Paper: mellow moss, basic black, glossy white, brushed gold
Accessories: corner rounder, ribbon, reinkers, glimmer mist, gold beads
