Say Yes to Yellow

I tried something new today...   a little bit of water colouring - 
'little' being the operative word!

When it comes to 'arty' stuff, I am rubbish, but I found a small tin of kids paints
at the bottom of a craft box and thought I would give them a go.

I mixed up some yellow on an acrylic stamp block and painted it onto my card panel.
Eek !  I am so chuffed.
Yes, I know the average 4 year old could do this just as well, but it's a start :-)

I can totally relate to the whole- can't color like a 5 year old bit- and yet the cards turn out. I'm totally going to describe myself as chuffed one day this week! :) Charming card that really works. So glad to have found you through Simon Says Stamp's challenge.

Hi Caroline! Just in case you don't see the reply to your question on my blog - I did a very long post back in February last year which explains and shows how I store my paper pads, including the way I have halved envelopes in the backs of them for snippets :)
