Paper Morsels

Paper Crafts and Sweet Morsels from life.

In the Stars

August is a month for Anniversaries – ours was last week and my parents’ is this week!

I was inspired by some Pinterest posts of different cards with water coloring that looked like these amazing multi-colored galaxies full of stars.  I decided to try my hand at it.  I am always amazed at how great water coloring can look and how adding some little extras can give it dimension (no pun intended!).  This is the card I made for my hubby – which is similar to the one I sent to my parents.  I can tell you that the photo just couldn’t capture all the shimmer, shine and depth!
