Welcome back to another Joyful Stars Blog Hop! We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants who share something each month on the 9th and at 9PM EST. If you are coming from Betty Locco's blog you are on the right track. (If you get "lost" along the way visit Joyce's blog for the complete lineup.) Have fun being inspired!
I had so much fun using Close to My Heart Watercolor Paints for the Watercolor Blog Hop last week that I decided to use them again for this card. The sketch is from Atlantic Hearts Sketch #150 and the color theme is from A Blog Named Hero called "Rainbow". Since this card has a birthday message I'm also entering it into the Seize the Birthday challenge.
I used thin washi tape to mask off sections on watercolor paper to create the color blocks. Here's a helpful tip: when watercoloring use painter's tape and a flat sturdy board so that you can heat emboss it to dry the paper and keep it flat. I used a Dollar Tree mini cutting board for this purpose.

The next stop on the blog hop is Crystal Davis' blog. I'm sure you'll be inspired by what she shares.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
