Silver Star Wishes

After watching a very fun Jennifer McGuire video, I tried the watercolor/salt technique using pieces of Canson cold press watercolor paper.  I made three pieces on watercolor paper - a yellow/lime green, pink/red, and this blue.  I added Perfect Pearls to the salt for some shimmer which is not very visible on this blue piece, but shows up much more on the yellow.
I trimmed down the piece, rounded the corners and embossed using a sentiment from Close to my Heart "Blossom" workshop.  The stars and silver thread were in my stash. The stars come with a tiny center hole and the tiny circles make great additional sparkles in the sky.  Tricky to adhere, but worth it.  The card base was made with CTMH Pacifica card stock.
I had a lot of fun using this technique!
