Welcome everyone! Today I’m going to share with you how to watercolor with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I’m also including the storage I use for my makers, different papers I use and also some great images that I think would work great for watercoloring.
You can view the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
I go over a lot of information in the video, so please sure to check that out.
I’m using the Always Roses stamp set from Gina K Designs. This is a great starter image because of the amount of room you have to work with in the petals.
I’m also heat embossing the images in Gold embossing powder onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. This is also a great trick if you are just starting out as the heat embossing creates a barrier so your water is less likey to run into each other. I also just really love heat embossing my images.
This particular set has a coordinating die so I was able to die cut my images and add to panel that I created by adding strips of colored cardstock.
The sentiment is die cut from a beautiful Gold Mirror cardstock using the Enjoy word die from the Time To Coast Card Kit. If you are looking to purchase this item individually, the kit contents will be available to purchase individually at the next Gina K Designs release so keep a look out for that!
The smaller sentiment is from the Enjoyable Greetings stamp set which is also part of the Time To Coast Card Kit. You can check out this video HERE is you want to see more ideas using this kit.
I also said in the video I’d share some more inspiration using the Zigs and Majestic Peony shown in the video. Here are those examples.
This is another image watercolored with Zigs using the Majestic Peony.
This image is from the Colossal Coneflower stamp set.
This is the collaboration stamp set from Hero Arts & Gina K Designs Friendship Blooms.
Pictured below is the Massive Peony.
Hola, Mindy! Wow, girl! These are GORGEOUS! So beautiful! I absolutely love peonies. 💜💜💜💜 I hope you are having a great Summer. We have been cool and rainy (San Antonio, Texas), which is super rare. We were 75*F the other day!! Say what? At this time of year, we are sweltering at or near 100*F. I guess the Lord felt bad for us after we were bombarded with freezing temps and snow in February. haha haha Warm hugs.
Absolutely gorgeous projects!
