Video : Easy Zig Background with Altenew Bamboo Roses!

Today I have a card to share for the Altenew blog.  I just had to find out what the fuss was with these Zig Clean color Real Brush pens…   so I caved and bought some and you get to see me try them out.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

  1. Therese, this is gorgeous. I haven’t used my zig markers this way – but you have inspired me and I am off to my craft room to try it out. The touch of washi tape was the perfect finishing touch.

  2. A very unusual approach to watercolouring and stamping…you estimated the spaces so perfectly! I love the loose look. What a beautiful card!!! Another versatile way to use my MISTI. Can’t wait to try this technique! (Therese, I love seeing and hearing your ‘creative thought processes in action’!) 🙂 You are a Blessing!

  3. I think you’re going to really enjoy these markers, Therese! I don’t use mine nearly enough, but I love them!
    Another gorgeous card, too! I love the effect of your watercolored background has with these roses…so pretty!

  4. Aren’t you a clever cookie? I would have stamped then painted, but with your way you’d get a better look. Unless…….you stamped in a light coloured ink, watercoloured and then restamped with black using the same positioning on the Misti. I’ll have to try that. ☺

  5. Maybe this is the answer to my loose watercolor – paint first then stamp. Such a great idea and card, Therese. Adding the acetate down the side was a nice surprise.

  6. Beautiful, I love how you created the background first and it was nice to see the Zigs used this way. I didn’t know they blended so well.

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
