Happy Monday, everyone!
I decided to try the Zig Clean markers on this project and I really enjoyed using them! I continue to learn how to best apply them and what techniques work best for me. For this project I painted the markers on to a piece of clear plastic and then used my water brush to add the color to the images.
I stamped the images using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne - it’s safe for use with watercolors. I stamped the images and heat set them so that they wouldn’t smudge. I’ve accidentally smudged my images in the past when I stamp and start the watercolor right away. *laugh* Lesson learned!
I blended the Oxide inks on the Neenah Solar White 80lb card base first. Then I die cut some Smooth Bristol cardstock and die cut a heart from the center. Next I pulled some warm gray cardstock from the Hero Hues sampler pack by Hero Arts and die cut a hill. (I really recommend picking up a sampler pack of the cardstock, it has really helped me decide what colors I use most!)
The card is assembled in the following order:
First the die cut heart base is adhered to the card base
Next I added the warm gray hill
Then the die cut colored images
Finished it off with some sequins + jewels
It comes together really quickly once the images are colored and die cut. Thanks for stopping by today, everyone! Happy crafting.
