For this Ellen Hutson’s Challenge, cards are to include a combination of Alte New & Ellen Hutson products. My card uses the “Mondo Magnolia” sentiment from Ellen and “Sketchy Cities America” from Alte New. The skyline is Boston and is a design case from Jen Rzasa that she taught in the Online Card Classes Watercolor. In class she used Inktense pencils, however, I played with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I also tested them on Bristol Smooth 100lb paper and they work FABULOUSLY. I had tried them on Neenah Solar White and they didn’t blend so I was pleased to find another surface besides watercolor paper for my new markers.
The background stamp is from Club Scrap. I created the background on another card base then stamped the city, colored it and then fussy cut it out, popping it up on the background sheet. I also used a brush and side water rather than a water brush. I’m finding this works better for me.
