VIDEO: Watercoloring W Plus 9 Beautiful Bouquet with Zig Clean Color Markers

Happy Wednesday, friends!  It has been a fun week creating cards for my co-workers!  First, I made a fun birthday card and now a congratulations card to celebrate a retirement!  I've been itching to ink up this gorgeous W Plus 9 stamp set for quite awhile but to be 100% honest, I was a bit intimidated by it!  I've seen so many amazing projects done with this Beautiful Bouquet stamp line and I didn't want to be the first to totally botch a project with these flowers!



But as it turns out, the stamp does all the work for you!  The image is just so beautiful there is really no way to mess it up, especially if you use your Zig markers to color it in.  I'm telling you, they make watercoloring a breeze!  The trick is to let the first layer of color dry before adding darker shadows.  This lets the color build.  Check out the video for a better idea of what I mean by this!


I finished up with some clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh and just popped the watercolored panel up on a neutral card base - after all, the image is the star of the show!  



This card was so much fun to create!  I can't wait to try this image with a different coloring medium - I'm thinking Prismacolors are next . . .  Thanks so much for joining me and I'll see you all next time!  Bye!
