How to Watercolour 2 BEAUTIFUL Bouquets with ZSCM Markers & Discount CODE + Video!

Have you ever tried watercolouring with Markers? Today I share 2 techniques and 2 cards to show you how much fun it can be!

ZSCM reached out to me and I was so happy to try their Dual Brush Watercolor Art Markers. They are very affordable and perfect to use with or without water. You can see them in action in my video linked below. AND I have a bonus Discount for you to SAVE 10% on your order, simply use this LINK HERE.


For both card designs today I used the Altenew Simply Spring Stamp Set. This meant that no ‘masking’ was needed and I could easily focus on colouring and with so many flowers in the bouquet I was able to try out so many of the colours.

I started with a bright bold colourful design. It was easy to build up the colours and shading with these markers, especially on the Bristol Smooth Cardstock.

And because I didn’t add too much water it helped speed up the process, but this style of colouring certainly still takes time.

I added a simple Hot Foiled sentiment from Ellen Hutson’s Way With Words Set.

My second idea was to create a similar card but a much quicker ‘washier’ version.

Although I did add some depth with a second layer of colour wash.

And this time I used a sentiment from the Casual Greetings Stamp Set.

  1. these are both lovely but I think I prefer the light wash watercolors. Great stamp and paints.

  2. It’s hard to pick a favorite, Therese. I love bright colors but that wash-y one is so soft and pretty and may be easier for me to do.

  3. So gorgeous, I love them both! I’m off to watch your video to see these markers in action.

  4. Hola, Therese! Gosh, these are spectacular! Your coloring is so special and lovely. I’m always amazed!

  5. H Therese, Love these 2 coloring styles. Hard to pick a fav but today I’ll pick the lighter colored one.

  6. Both beautiful Therese. You’re definitely the queen of the florals. My favourite is the pastel colouring ❤️

  7. LOVE the bright and bolder card because there is nothing subtle about me 🙂
    For technique, I would probably be able to do your “washy” card easier as I am still trying to have the patience to apply water color as layers. Both are lovely!
