Paint Me Happy

Hey there!
Well, the girls over at CASology are really keeping me on my toes.
This week the cue word is PAINT.
Great, I thought, as I rummaged around for an old tray of watercolours. But, after 2 hours in my craft room, all I emerged with was a bin full of soggy paper. I guess that's why the watercolours were put away last time!
This morning I went for a different approach and used colour swatches from a paint brochure.



I cut out each colour swatch and added them to a strip of card with foam tape. I didn't even have to think of how to arrange the colours - they were already in that order in the brochure. Easy peasy.
I managed to remember to stamp 'birthday' before I added the colour strip with more foam tape - then I just stuck on the 'happy' and a few scattered gems.

 No guesses for what I will be grabbing, next time I am at the DIY store!

I am forever stealing paint chips from the hardware store - they're such a great addition to any crafty arsenal! Love these blues and I'm glad I'm not the only one who forgets to stamp before adding dimension on occasion! LOL! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
