Today I am sharing a card made with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I recently took Kathy Racoosins Daily Marker class at Junkie Fest and I tried out the technique she demonstrated with watercolor. Guess what? It works! Yes it took repetition and yes, I left my watercolor bumper guards on (embossed stamp), but the technique works and I feel like I can attempt a watercolor with out embossing the image first.
I started by stamping Simon Says Stamps Floral Mix Background on Canson Watercolor Paper. I used Ink On 3 clear embossing ink and used Hero Arts Detail Gold embossing powder.
The background looks pink, but I was coloring out on the patio and our umbrella is red and it cast a pink hue on my panel.
I began with the roses. I used Wine Red – 24, Carmine Red – 22 and Light Carmine – 21. Once I had completed the roses, I started on the leaves. I used Olive Green – 43 and Light Green – 41 for all of the leaves. I then moved on to the sunflower. I used Light Brown – 061 on the petals, Mid Brown – 065 on the center and Dark Brown – 062 around the edges of the center.
For the Zinnia’s, I used Yellow – 50 and Bright Yellow – 52. For the pink flower, I used Light Carmine – 21, Pale Rose – 230 and Light Pink – 26. Finally, for the background, I used Cornflower Blue – 37.
I trimmed down the panel to 5.25 by 3.75 inches and mounted it on to Tonic Nuvo Cobalt Velour Mirror Card. I love this paper! I then scribbled some more Cornflower Blue on some scrap watercolor paper and stamped my sentiment on it using Ink On 3 clear embossing ink and Hero Arts Detail Gold embossing powder.
I then added the sentiment to the card panel. I attached my panel to a Catherine Pooler card base and my card was finished.
Thanks so much for stopping by. See you soon!
