So, I jumped on the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker bandwagon a few weeks ago. They are seriously amazing... The blend is so super smooth. I initially bought them because I wanted the pale, almost washed out colors, but the more I played with them, the more the bright colors attracted my attention. This card is an homage to pink and purple, and I couldn't love it more.
I started out with Ellen Hutson's Mondo Magnolia stamp set. It's got that gigantic flower that is just begging to watercolored. I stamped it three times with Antique Linen Distress Ink that had been stamped off once. I then colored it with a Deep Pink zig marker, and I used the Purple zig marker to add shading. Gold Wink of Stella was used for the centers to add some sparkle. I used Deep Violet for the background. I love that I made this panel with only three markers... These markers rock so much.
I die cut "hope" from the Winnie and Walter big, bold, and comfort set in gold mirror card stock from Bazzill, then white heat embossed a "sending" from the coordinating stamp set. As I look at it now, it might be a good encouragement card for a friend with breast cancer.
Pardon my hiatus for the last few weeks; my twinkies got sick, (double ear infections from molars coming in... Yuck), then my mom was in town, then we went on vacation... I think my mojo was also in a bit of a hiatus. I did lots of playing in between doctor appointments and driving hither and yon, but nothing worth showing here. Please come back again, despite my erratic posting lately! I will be back in a day or two with my PTI Blog Hop post! :)
