Happy Friday, friends! On Wednesday I shared a watercolored flower card in honor of The Ton’s Spring 2018 Release. At the time when I made this card, I was feeling sick and couldn’t do a video. However, I’m feeling much better so I made another watercolored flower card. This time with a video. ❤ Especially for you!

In this video, I’m showing you how to do easy watercoloring with ZIG Clean Color Real Markers. I only used one marker for each shade and a water brush. If I can do this, YOU can do it, too! 😀

I used the beautiful Peony Garden Cling Background stamp from The Ton. I heat embossed the design with WOW! Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing powder. Think of all the other embossing powders you could use. The possibilities are endless.

Easy Watercoloring with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers

To do this easy and fast watercoloring, I recommend using a good watercolor paper. I always use the Canson XL Watercolor paper. It’s very heavy weight (140lb) and can handle a lot of water. These ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers are perfect for fast watercoloring since you only need to use one color for each shade. For this card I used Yellow, Light Carmine and Light Green.

First I laid down some color to the flowers. I usually apply the color to the top or bottom edges of the design. Then I used a Pentel Aquash Brush to blend out the colors. Any water or paintbrush will work, though! Next, I went back in with the same marker to add a little bit of extra shading here and there. Finally I did some more blending to remove any harsh lines and create a nice and smooth gradient. Easy!

Once the watercolor piece was dry, I die cut a sentiment from the Bold General Greeting Word Plate set from The Ton. I adhered some gold glitter card stock to the back of that paper and put everything together. Quick and easy just like the watercoloring. In total this card took me about 30 minutes to make. Pretty quick, right? 😊

That’s it for now. Make sure to leave a comment if you have any questions. Big hugs. 💌

Happy Wednesday, friends! Today I’m joining The Ton’s Spring 2018 Release Blog Hop. I was originally going to share a video tutorial on this card. However, I’m suffering from a big cold and a super sore throat so I’m unable to do a voice-over. I’m sorry! 🤒 But don’t worry. I’ll share new videos once I feel better.

The Spring 2018 Release is filled with floral designs including dahlias, peonies and roses. In total, there are 14 new stamps, coordinating dies and 5 standalone dies. Good news!

I’m showcasing the Coming Up Dahlias set. I adore the delicate design. I stamped the flower design twice on Canson Watercolor Paper. Then I colored the flowers and leaves with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I used only three colors: Peach Pink, Orange and Light Green. I like the fact that you need only one color and a water brush for some brilliant shading. Well. I’m not saying my coloring is brilliant. 🤪 I still need a lot of practice. My friend Effie on the other hand, does the most beautiful watercoloring ever.

Once the watercolor piece was completely dry, I die cut a sentiment from the Bold General Greeting Word Plate set from The Ton. Next I adhered a piece of gold glitter card stock on the back of the floral piece. Easy! To finish off this card, I sprinkled some sequins here and there. I used Medallion Gold, Guava Shortcake, Precious Pink and Glass Slippers sequins from The Ton.

Hi, friends. My Spring Break has kicked off and I’m looking forward to do lots of card making, shopping and catching up with family. 💛 Most of you are probably enjoying the Easter Weekend. Make sure to eat lots of chocolate. Mmmmmmm. 🥚🍫

Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past couple of days. My final internship at kindergarten is keeping me occupied. However, the kids and I are having so much fun together. I love to watch them learn and grow. 🌈 It’s the best job ever. I’m looking forward to graduating in June and hopefully start working in September.

I also have some crafty updates for you. 😄 There are lots of exciting things going on. I love new companies. Especially when they’re specialized in cute designs. When I came across Hello Bluebird on Instagram, I was giddy. I mean… look at their designs. Eep!

Meanwhile, my friends at Tonic Studios are celebrating their first anniversary on Hochanda. I’m a big fan of their Nuvo products including the Drops, Embellishment Mousse, and more. Good news! From the 5th to the 15th of April, they are launching new exclusive products. Read this page for more information. I’m particularly excited about the Nuvo Diamond Hybrid Ink Pads.

Besides from that, my sweet friend Effie from The Ton will be releasing new products on April 3rd. We’ll be celebrating with a blog hop filled with inspiration and giveaways. I’ll be creating my card this weekend so make sure to keep an eye on my Instagram page for a sneak peek. 🌸

That’s it for now, my friends. I’ll be back next week with a new card and video tutorial. See you then! Big hugs. 💌
