Card Made from Live Video Technique with Zig Markers

Hi Everybody,

Did you see the LIVE FB Video I did a few days ago??  I can't believe I did a live video but it was actually fun.  I did have my phone backwards but hey, it was my first one.... the main thing is you could see the technique being done.  I look forward to doing more videos in the future.  I hope you'll subscribe to my YouTube channel.  


This is the card I made from the "Zig Scribble" Technique that I showed on the video. Isn't it gorgeous???  I'm telling you, you can't mess this up.  Anything you do will be awesome.




I love the bright colors.  You can somewhat control how light or dark your colors are by how much you spray with water and the color markers you choose.  I chose purple and dark pink as two of mine so it's a little dark.  

Please Note:  Use Bristol Smooth Paper

I embossed a word background which I think turned out beautiful, by Heartfelt Creations called Large Elegant Background Words.  I used Ranger Silver Pearl Embossing Powder which I think is a must to have in your stash.  I stamped 'I Love' in Versafine Onyx Black Ink and put Clear Embossing Powder over it to give it a little shine.  This is from Simon Says Stamp called You Matter.  The large You is a die from this set that matches the large stamp.  I cut it out with black and then a silver pearl vellum.  I wanted it to look like a slight shadow behind the silver pearl. The silver pearl vellum didn't show up quite as much as I wanted it to.  The vellum is from Graphix called Specialty Assortment.  It is 40# so it is a good weight, not real flimsy and cut good with the die. 

I finished it off by adding a few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I hope I inspired you to try this technique.  I wanted to make a video to show you it is easy, fast and great results.  This technique really does only take a minute.  It took longer for me on the video because I just wanted to demonstrate how you can keep spritzing and what the result would be and using a paint brush to move ink around, etc.

I hope you'll stick with me as I start my YouTube video endeavor hopefully within the next week.  My husband took over the project of establishing a video area and setup so it's taken more time than I expected lol.  I am blessed because he said he wanted to provide all the tools to help make me successful.  Awwww!  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Wow this is beautiful but I don't have the zig markers but do have tombow and stampin-up water makers do you think those would work? Going to look for your utube channel want to see how you did this. It is just so so beautiful

Beautiful card!! :-)

Regina Cooper said...

Thank you all so much! I actually did a blog post about a comparison using Tombow and they do not work the same. They are dye based not water based and so for this particular technique the ink sinks into the paper rather than flowing like the Zig ink. I've never used Stampin' Up markers but I'm guessing no. Aren't those alcohol markers like copics? I would maybe buy a few individually to try and get an orange, green, purple, pink and yellow. You can get them at places like Blitzy for around $1.76. Hope that helps :)

I missed the video and was hoping you had a link to see it posted on your blog. Maybe I can find it somewhere. I do love the pretty card you made with that technique though. I have the Zigs so might try it one day soon.

Connie Newell said...

I want, but do not currently have the zigs either. Do yo think the distress markers would work? Love this technique and these cards.

Regina Cooper said...

Connie, I saw someone on FB use the distress markers and it looked like they worked pretty good. Keep adding ink and spraying and I think the result will look like the Zigs. :)
