I wanted to color in my images today with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I started by stamping down my images onto a piece of Canson XL watercolor paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and covering with Clear Embossing Powder, and used my heat tool to set. I used for the cat - Gray and Light Gray, Bird Bath - Mid Brown, Water - Light Blue and Cobalt Blue, and Birds and Butterfly - Pink Flamingo, Light Carmine, Pink, and Orange.
Once I was satisfied with my images, I set aside the panel to dry before using the Newton's Bird Bath Dies to cut them out. Next, I wanted to start building my scene, so I used the new Cloud Stencil from MFT and some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to create a beautiful blue sky. I also die cut some green card stock using the Grassy Border Die from Lawn Fawn to round out my scene.
For my pattern papers I used the Sunshiny Days 6x6 from Pebbles to bring the colors together from my images I colored. This pad is a great one! I really like it! I used the Scalloped Rectangle dies to die cut the colored diagonal plaid pattern and used a basic rectangle die to die cut the navy piece to frame my main focal point.
The sentiment comes from the same stamp set, and I stamped it down using my VersaFine black ink once again. This ink is great for sentiments as well as embossing! Then, I started to adhere my pieces together with either liquid glue or foam adhesive, and for a final touch, I added some Clear Wink of Stella shimmer pen to the water.
I think this card turned out cute, and I hope you think so as well!! I also have a video tutorial showing how this card came together over at my YOUTUBE channel. Thanks so much for joining me today!! Hope you all have a nice week ahead!
See you soon!!
