Recently, I discovered some watercolor markers that so far, I've been loving - they're called Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Today, I show you a quick look at these markers. I just have the basic set of 12 colors, and I think it's a great set to have. The colors are really bright and blend so well together.
Then for the background, I decided to switch to a different way to watercolor - Distress Inks. I decided to use these because with the ink pads, it's easier to get a big area painted in. As I usually do for backgrounds, I wet the paper with water before bringing any color in, and that really helped the paints to blend together.
I love that soft yet distinct watercolor edge you get by painting in a vague area but not reaching to the edges of the paper!
To finish off, I added some clear star stickers to add some subtle dimension.
Here's the video to see how it's done!
I really love how this card came together, and if you love watercolor, you should definitely try out these two techniques!! It's easy to create a beautiful card with any stamps you have :)
