A play with my Zig Clean Colours...


Hi Lovely Bloggers...

OK, I had time to play at the weekend.....  and I've had some Zig Clean Colour pens for a little while in my stash....... so I decided to dig them out and give them a go!  

I'd bought this fabulous Tim Holtz stamp set a week or so ago - and knew I'd like to use them for these pens.  I was inspired for my first watercolour card by Kristina Werner - in fact my layout is very similar to one I saw her do,  as for my first card using these Zigs, I felt I needed to do as the experts do!  So thank you Kristina for inspiring me!

And oh my goodness.......  I LOVED colouring with Zigs!!  I was really pleased with my first attempt..  and know you'll be seeing them a lot in the near future..  while I practice light/dark/shadows etc..

Materials used:
Images - Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Flower Garden
Colouring - Zig Clean Colour Markers
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink
Enamel Dot from Doodlebug Design

Hope you like what I did...

Big hugs
