Making My Mark with Zig Writer Markers

Coloring with marker has never really been my wheelhouse.  I own a number of different types of markers, but usually, when I color with them I find the end result disappointing.  This card was a better experience than most.


I started by stamping the Simon Says Cosmos Background stamp with VersaFine Smokey Gery Ink onto Bristol Smooth Paper.  I really do like the Bristol Smooth Paper for coloring.


I started with just a few colors, but then added more as I progressed.  I used Evergreen for all of the stems, and Splash for the bright blue background.  For the flowers, I used Butter for all the centers and then created two-marker color combos the petals colors including and in no certain order - Powder Blue, English Lavender, Plumb, Baby Pink, Platinum, Bluebonnet, Pure Violet, Evergreen, Hyacinth.


Once the coloring was complete I added a little bit of Wink of Stella to the flower centers.  Then I stamped "Miss You" from the My Favorite Things Love is in the Mail set, using the same VersaFine ink, onto a pennant cut from white cardstock using the Stitched Pennants dies from Verve Stamp and glued it to the card.
