Zig Clean Color Real Brush

Happy Hump Day!

I had so much fun today creating this card. For the first time EVER - I water colored. It was so easy using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers!  These markers come in 80 colors and you can either buy them individually or by sets. They have a super fine point brush tip that blends so easily - it's fun! You can use a water brush and even Wink of Stella Glitter Markers to blend the colors which gives it a glittery look.


First, I would love to thank Jennifer McGuire on her awesome Youtube video's on using the Clean Color Real Brushes - I even bought the same image she demonstrated with -"A New Day by Wplus9 Design.  I stamped my image using VersaMark Ink Pad by Tsukineko and wet embossed using Super Fine Embossing Powder by Ranger and heat set it.  I was able to color and blend with ease the very first time using the brushes.  On some areas of the image I used only the color brush with no water added for a more vibrant color. My favorite thing - Easy Peasy. I can't wait to color again with them!





And, don't forget to enter your cards into the 7 Kids College Challenge blog for a chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate - which will help you buy these awesome brushes!
