Zig Scribbling Technique on Watercolor Paper

Hi Everybody,

Just wanted to post a card where I had tested the 'Zig Scribbling' technique on actual watercolor paper.  I showed the raw piece after I did it and here is a card.

Bristol Smooth Paper is definitely better for this technique because the ink flows better, stays on top of the paper, allows you to move it around easily.  The watercolor paper has the texture to it so the ink sinks into the paper more so and therefore you would have a little less control than with the Bristol.

I had shown this picture a while back but only with the bouquet stamp watercolored with the zigs.  This is what I did to the background, I scribbled some color all the way around after I had made this 2 weeks ago so you can always go back and add to these is my point.













The bouquet stamp is from Concord & 9th called Hello Lovely.  I love this set!  The sentiment is from Poppy Stamps called Flourish Blooms.  I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder  I added a few dew drops from The Ton.

I would really love it if you would subscribe to my YouTube Channel. I just started it yesterday.  I'll be having a giveaway soon so watch for that!

I am one who can't colour inside the lines, so I have to try this. You made it look so easy and how amazing is your result! I hope mine will turn out pretty too 😊
