This is round 2 of the 30 day color Challenge at The Daily Marker. If you are not familiar with Kathy’s work, you are truly missing the work of an artist. She wields a copic marker like a fine instrument. Her coloring is jaw dropping and for 30 days she is doing a daily project to inspire all of us to do some coloring.
The theme this go around is Watercolor! I just got a few Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens so this was perfect timing. Right now, Marker Supply has the 12 pen set for only 19.99. That is the lowest I’ve seen around, even less than Amazon and much less then the other stores I normal buy my card making supplies.
My card is made with the My Favorite Things “You Gnome Me” stamp set. I used the Kuretake pens and tried it both with water and without water. They way you can blend these markers together is amazing. For example, the mushrooms below are brown, orange, and yellow mixed directly on the page, no water, no palette, nothing. These markers are all that right now so I just had to see what the fuss was all about. Okay – I’m hooked. I’ve already put in my second order for more (shhh don’t tell Bob). The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp “Happy & Smile” from the new June card Kit.

Here are this weeks colors:
For my card this week, I stamped Repeat Impressions “Iris Window 919-I” three times to create a scene across the card. I colored the Iris’ with Copic Markers and trimmed them out using the technique from my April Project of the Week (April POTW Here).
To frame the images I used some Memory Foil Tape and backed it with Bazzil card stock. The embossing folder for the background is Darice, which was done after I cut it out using a Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die.
