Who wants to know how to make the quickest card ever but still look pretty and like you put some time into it? ME! I saw a video on how to use Zig Markers and water spritzed to get a beautiful card by Laurel Beard so I tried it and it works!
I used a Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen on the petals but you can't see much of it in this pic.
So all you do is stamp or emboss your image on the Bristol Smooth or Watercolor Paper. This is the first time I've tried this and I used Bristol only because I already had an image stamped on it but next time I will try watercolor paper. Next, you take a few Zig Markers and literally scribble over the different sections of your image and you can mix colors, it doesn't matter where you put the ink.
When everything is covered on the embossed or stamped image, spritz heavily with water everywhere you have Zig Marker ink and then watch the beauty happen. You can pick it up and let the ink roll around. I even took some of the droplets that fell off the card and used a medium sized, flat paint brush and I put some of the ink back onto the card, just some of the background and some around the edges. Then I let it dry. You can heat set it as well.
The floral image is from Altenew called Persian Motifs. I embossed these with Ranger Silver Pearl embossing powder. I love this color so much because it's softer than white. The sentiment is from Concord & 9th called Hello Lovely. I love the size and font of the word Lovely here. I stamped that with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed with WOW clear embossing powder. I added a few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish it off.
The bottom layer is an orchid color from Gina K Designs but it was a limited edition color a long time ago. I wish she would bring it back since purples are being used so much in watercolor, oxide inks, etc. Since quite a bit of the bottom layer was showing I decided to go around the edges with Versamark ink and use clear embossing powder, I stamped one of the flowers from Persian Motif. It's so pretty! It's subtle but adds a lot when you look at the entire card all together.
So that's my easiest, quickest card ever. I think I'll go through and make up a bunch of these to have on hand for cards. I hope I inspired you to get your Zigs out and start scribbling! :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
