That One Time I Watercolored

Hi friends!  I hope that you are well!  We are ok.  It was rough today.  I think the rain just put my kids in a weird mood.  Hopefully, their moods will improve but this week is odd with a holiday on a Wednesday.  We'll see!  Keep your fingers crossed for us.  

Today, I'm blogging a card I made at my friend Rachel's crop a couple months ago.  Rachel let us try out her Close to My Heart watercolor paints to make the base of our card.  It was pretty simple but it looks so pretty!  I went out and bought some watercolor paper and some brushes so I could make more cards like this.  We also got to try out this really cool Gold Foil Tape.  It reminds me of the tape they used to package up these dried salted plums I used to have all the time as a kid from the Asian grocery store.  We also go to use a really pretty Coral Shimmer Trim that is STUNNING and matches so well with the watercoloring!  The best thing about using a company like Close to My Heart is that their colors match.  You can get cardstock, ink, embelishments, etc... in the exact same color and that appeals to someone like me (aka horrible at matching.)  


Have a great day, friends!  Hopefully, I'll be back with more watercolored goodness this month!
