Coloring with Zig Clean Color Real Brush

One of the easiest ways to get vibrant, eye popping color on your images, is to use Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  They go on like butter, and they blend just beautifully.  Up until recently, I had mostly used them with water, so they were more like a transparent, soft watercolor application. 
They are wonderful for that as well, but I recently gave them a go, alone. 
And the results are...WOW!

I inked up this gorgeous stamp from Mama Elephant, and went with a tropical palette of colors from my Zig collection.  Isn't it pretty?  It's so vibrant!  I stamped the image with Versafine Onyx ink on Strathmore Bristol smooth paper.  I have found this is the best paper for this application.



Here is another one that I did...different color palette, but still as vibrant and lovely.


That's it for today.  Please comment below, and also follow me. :)  I love comments!

Coloring book style stamps

As paper crafters, we all love color.  And coloring.  I know that when adult coloring books came out a few years ago, I started to get interested in coloring again.  It is relaxing.  I collected a few coloring books and brought out my colored pencils and started getting lost in shading, selecting colors and finding another way to feed my creative needs. 


Recently, I was on a business trip, and I brought along some stamped images and markers.  It was the perfect way to de-stress from my long work and travel days.  This stamp is from My Favorite Things.

When I first saw these stamps from Honeybee, I knew I had to have them because they offered so many fun coloring options! 


This beautiful floral corner is from Lil Inker Designs.  It is by far a favorite of mine simply because the arrangement has already been done and it is SO pretty!  I colored this one with my Copics.  I also used a die and stamp sentiment set from Lil Inker Designs.

What are your favorite new coloring stamps?  I would love to have a comment from you!

Peace,
Jacquie
