30 Day colouring challengePosted: October 2, 2015 Filed under: Fresh, Watercolour | Tags: Kuretake Zig clean color real brush markers, Penny Black stamps, Tsukineko Versafine inks 13 Comments
Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker is hosting a 30 Day Coloring Challenge during October. It is her third colouring challenge and her videos, blog posts and clever creations are very inspiring. I played along a few times during her last challenge and hope to participate even more this time. For all the details visit Kathy’s blog and check out her instagram also.
The colouring on my ‘fresh’ bouquet was done with Zig clean color real brush markers. I have 14 colours (so far), most of them quite bright so it was not difficult to get vivid petals by blending just the yellow, the pink and a little water. The background did involve fussy cutting a mask! Unlikely to happen often, I know. I stamped the background in versafine vintage sepia ink over the masked central image. Now that I think about it, several masks were needed so the background images did not stamp over the top of each other. This is why you don’t see this sort of thing very often on this blog. I do have a ‘too lazy to fussy cut and mask’ technique which often works well. I will share that some time soon.
Stamps: Fresh , Snippets (PB)
Inks: Versafine Vintage Sepia ink (Imagine Craft/Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Fabriano 100% cotton hot pressed watercolour paper, Neenah Natural White cardstock, Brown cardstock

So pretty, Heather!
this card is so cool. i’m so in love with zig markers and poppies and leaves right now lol.
your colors and blending just knock me out. thanks for sharing!
Heather, this is absolutely gorgeous, and I love how you’ve used the floral image as your background/DP. It’s so striking with the colored image…and colored so beautifully and vibrantly with the Zig makers. Wow, I love it! Hugs!
Love how you created that background….looks like a background stamp. I too don’t fussy cut often…lol. Love that pop of bright colors. Gorgeous card! 🙂
Fabulous card and great colours !
Gorgeous poppies and the colours are so vibrant and pretty using the Zig brush markers Heather. That background in sepia works really well too and a lot of work with the masking. x
I had a chance to try the Zig markers recently… love them. You have used them to such good effect here! The poppies are gorgeous! So is the background stamping.
Gorgeous card, with exquisite coloring. That’s def. fussy “fussy cutting”! Please do share your lazy fussy cut masking technique!!
So beautiful love the Zig Clean and Clear markers and this is stunning
Beautiful bouquet! I’ve been debating on those markers…. Definitely a must have 😉
Stunning card, love it. I also love that stamp and am going to have to try and get it.
