30 Day Color Challenge with Kathy at the Daily Marker

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.
