USArtQuest Watercolour palette - mica pearlescent paints in "interference" colours
(these are the colours which are most vibrant when used on dark cardstock)

Don't know about where you live....but boy the rain that has fallen in this neck of the woods over the last 2 days has been unbelieveable......thankfully it's blue sky this morning with just a few fluffy clouds.....just as well.....thought I might have to take time out from crafting to go build an ark.
Well that's it for today folks......time to get your Penny Blacks looked out.....inked up and away you go....look forward to popping over to see what you have all created....happy crafting everyone......Hugs Kath xxxx
