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.

  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.
