Ellen Hutson Mix it up Challenge

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.
