Hello, everyone! I've been having such fun experimenting with my new ZIG Clean Color Markers, using them on different kinds of paper.
For the challenges I'm entering today, I tested the markers on Yupo paper. Yupo is a synthetic but recyclable, tree-free paper with a plastic feel to it. The ZIG markers worked great! The Yupo paper allows for a long drying time, so the colours were super duper easy to blend.
Isn't that cat adorable? It's a stamp designed by my friend Donna Gray for That's Crafty in the UK. The cat's name is Bentley and the stamp is quite big (which I love): 10 cm tall and 6,5 wide.
I stamped Bentley randomly around the paper (20,5 cm x 10,5 cm) with Archival ink, which took some time to dry on the Yupo paper, but once dry it stays.
After colouring in the cats using the watercolour markers, and a waterbrush here and there, I held my breath (not sure if I'd ruin it all) and lightly misted the painting with water....... and I did achieve what I wanted (phew!). I really like the imperfect "colour outside the lines" effect.
I'm entering my watercolour card to these three fine challenges:
Thanks for looking!
