Wish Upon Your Birthday Star

Birthday Star | by karen @ carefree creations

One Layer Simplicity: Sky’s the Limit challenge.


I used some tape to mask off a portion of the watercolor paper card base. I embossed the star chart image with clear powder, then watercolored the background. Using an iron, I removed the embossing.

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. Oh, Karen, I just love this card! I particularly like that you left the left side of the coloring ragged instead of running it off the edge of the card. That’s truly brilliant! Thanks for joining us at the OLS Challenge!
