Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Time just marches on!  It is our Joyful Stars Blog Hop time.  I just love the current CTMH Idea Book.  The papers, the stamps the embellishments are all so much fun to use to create great projects.  And, I love seeing all the wonderful projects that can be made with the goodies.
If you have arrived here from Lori’s Blog, you are on the right track.  For my project, I used Balloon Ride (X7180B) and Banner Wishes (B1438.)  The Hot Air Balloon is from a retired stamp set.
Card 1
I used the balloon from this set rather than the beautiful Hot Air Balloon in the current Idea Book because I wanted to use a coloring technique that is not often used anymore.  I used my Prisma Wax Based Pencils.  Because of the wax in the “lead” the technique used to blend the colors is totally different.  This is one of cards and the technique I will be teaching in May.  I shall share more about the technique as I develop the class.
It is time to head over to Andrea’s Blog to see what she has created for us.  As always, should you get lost along the way, you can always return to Joyce’s Blog to find a list of all the participants.  Enjoy the Hop.  For Now, Happy Crafting!

Your card is so cute. I don't think I ever used wax based pencils and am not familiar with that technique. But it looks pretty!

Thank you for sharing a "new" technique. I love the pop of ruby color.
