Ja, vrou, almal is behoorlik aan die waterverf, ne, dis net ek wat nog hier op droee land staan en nie weet of ek die moed het om in te spring nie!!! Ek dink ek sal vir my een van daai goedkoop stelletjies verf moet koop wat die kinders mee speel as hulle klein is - dalk verras ek myself, maar met my gebrek aan kunstige gene weet ek ook nie so mooi nie!!! Die goed wat die mense maak is als so stunning ek dink nie ek sal dit kan doen nie!!!

Jou kaartjie is sowaar 'n ware kunswerk, vrou!!! Die geel is eenvoudig pragtig en daai blommetjie is 'n meesterstuk so met die krulle daarby!! Ek is absoluut mal oor geel en swart saam en jou swart dotjies is so perfek geplaas!! Dit is alweer 'n wenner hierdie, vrou!!!
Absoluut ongelooflik pragtig!!!
Groete

ik zie het ook veel en heb er zelf ook wat mee gedaan, er is een online cursus gaande. Ik volg die niet, maar het is leuk met deze technieken te werken. Mooie kaart Hannelie, de zonnige kleuren, de swirl en e bloem en wat een mooie tekst!

Right?!! EVERYONE is watercoloring. I've been trying to remember how that all started, but it seems like it's happened rather quickly. Anyway, your card is absolutely gorgeous in every way! SO GLAD you joined the Fusion Challenge and brightened our gallery : )
