I got some Ziggies for my birthday!
Zig Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush Pens that is.
I got the 12 pack to give them a try.
Yesterday I had a play with them.
Don't you love that rich, vibrant color?
I used them on cold press watercolor paper and blended with my Aqua Painter.
I need lots more practice, but I was really happy with my first try.
One thing I found did not work was stamping and embossing on this paper.
I tried to mask the hummingbird and stamp the flowers behind.
So the hummer has dimension now.
I think I like it better this way!
The flowers (I'm calling them Crepe Myrtle since they are in full bloom around here),
were inked up with the Zigs (#25 pink) and the stems with #60 brown.
I stamped off a couple times to give dimension.
Then I moved the color with my damp Aqua Painter.
For the wash I scribbled on a plastic lid, diluted with a little water
and added to a wet background.
Since this is my very first (and at the moment only) Wplus9 set
and I really want to share this card over there,
I'm going to see if it will fly in their
maybe they won't throw it back.
That's all for this post.
I'm anxious to play some more.
Thanks for stopping by.
