Kind of Amazing

Hi friends, I'm back with my second post as guest designer for MarkerPop this month! MarkerPop is a store, based in California, that carries a lot of amazing brands including Mama Elephant, Lawn Fawn, Paper Smooches, Gorjuss, Tim Holtz, and a wide range of coloring mediums. Check out my post and leave a comment there, letting me know what you think of my card. :) 

My first card for Markerpop can be found here:

The card I have for today features WPlus9 products.

With some masking, I stamped the giraffes from WPlus9's Party Animal and the tree stump from Happy Mail with Ranger black dye ink on watercolor paper. I colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: 060 Brown, 062 Dark Brown, 064 Oatmeal, 066 Dark Oatmeal, 071 Flesh Colour, and 220 Tea Rose. I didn't add any water to them. I masked them and watercolored the background with some distress inks in Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Hickory Smoke, Stormy Sky, Salty Ocean, and Mowed Lawn. Once it was dry, I sprayed with Hero Arts Unicorn White ink spray. I stamped the balloon from Party Animal on separate watercolor paper and watercolored in Mermaid Lagoon. Once it was dry, I die-cut it and attached some fun foam behind it. The sentiments are from Unforgettable.

I die-cut the frame using stitched rectangle dies and taped it to acetate sheet. I colored it with a Zig Clean Color Real Brush in the color 023 Scarlet Red. For this part, I did add water since I was coloring a larger area. I added more fun foam behind the frame and attached the balloon to the frame so I would know where to draw the balloon string. I filled the inside with Pretty Pink Posh sequins that matched the colors I used and then taped down the top frame.

Zig Clean Color Brush Pens can be found in sets of 12, 2436, 48, and 60. There are 80 colors altogether, and I highly recommend them! They are also sold individually.

Thanks so much for visiting and leaving some love. I appreciate it! Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.
