Let's Celebrate ...

Back to card making today!!  I like do something creative on a Monday as I feel it gets the working week off to a good start ... and makes up for having to go to work!

Tonight's card celebrates my new crafty treat - I bought a set of Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers, an unnecessary extravagance!  I've seen quite a lot of blogs extolling the virtue of these so thought I would jump on the bandwagon and try them myself.  They arrived at the weekend so this is my first attempt to water colour with them ...

They are easy to use and easy to blend but it is to soon to give a final verdict but I am looking forward to playing with them.

In addition to the new markers I used:

Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Crafter's Companion Watercolour card
STAMPlorations Bloom Sketches stamp set
Clearly Besotted Many Messages stamp set

I'm entering the following challenges:

"Less is More" Week 230 Sketch Challenge (i have stretched the boundaries of the top box!)

STAMPlorations - ongoing Anything Goes Challenge to use STAMPlorations stamps



  1. Oh I love the pop out color. This card is so clean and classy!! I'm looking forward to hearing more about those markers, too!

  2. Superb coloring, Elaine! You do wonderful things with the daisies in the set every time you make a card with them! You can also link this up to the STAMPlorations Birthday Linky Party :o) Hugs!

  3. Fantastic work Elaine! I've a pack of those pens on my birthday wish list and having seen your stunning card I NEED 'em now!!!! LOL
