Water color!

Hi there!

For today's card I had to dig deep into my craft supplies!

The water color paint I used was bought more than 6 years ago for my youngest daughter's art classes, when we were still living in South-Africa!

All the colors still good, so with water colors such a huge trend right now, I won't put it away to deep!

I really enjoyed playing with it, although I don't actually have a clue how to !! I just added water and started painting!



My sentiment says : 'Congratulations' in Afrikaans.



Challenges:

Less is more  ~ green and yellow

CAS on Sunday ~ color me pretty

Virginias-view ~ water color

Keep it simple  ~ things with wings

Thanks for looking!

Have a great week!

You're a natural artist Hannelie! I bet you got tons of gold stars in grade school for your painting projects! Anita's "Zesty" is the perfect word to describe your card...lemon & lime fresh!!!
