Colorful Corner Garden


At CAS Mix Up this month
we're using Markers along with stamping and
another mixed media of your choice.

I hadn't used my Zigs in way too long.
So I got them out and had a wonderful time coloring with them.
I've used the Zig Markers, a  Stamped and Heat Embossed image, 
Waterbrush, and Vellum with more Heat Embossing.

I have been enjoying all the color going on at 
Virginia's View Challenge....

so I'm joining in there.

There are some awesome cards in both of these galleries!


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Love all the luscious flowers, and wow, your shading with the w/c is just amazing. The white embossing certainly highlights the water colors. Love the idea of the vellum sentiment that doesn't hide all this beauty. TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs

Brenda said...

Oh Miss Bonnie, I wish you would teach me to color like this with the Zigs! You have such a nice and soft look with your watercoloring. Mine is always to bold for my tastes. But love the way your beautiful flowers look. I guess I need to practice and practice and practice to try and achieve this look. This is one gorgeous card my friend and I am totally crushing on it! Hugs, Brenda

You sent me running right over to EBay to get that stamp. Then I realized that I simply don't have the watercoloring talent to make it look as beautiful as you have!!
