Clean Color Real Brush Markers


I have to confess that watercolor, hands-down, is my all-time favorite means to color and I own a variety of different watercolor tools because each serves a different purpose, depending on my project and the method I need. I love using the Kuretake Gansai Tambi for washes and coloring large expanses of area, and the Peerless are super easy and compact enough to take with me when I travel or have a small project that I just need to quickly swipe some gorgeous color onto.

Then along came the ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and, well, to make a long story short… they also had to come live at my house. *cheeky grin* Because they are awesome and fun in a completely different way–the points of the brush tips can get into such tight spots!  They really come to life on watercolor paper, so I suggest stocking up and snagging yourself a waterbrush, too–I recently became a fan of the small/detailer H20, especially for stamped images, because of the control.

Whether you’re already a fan of watercolor, or you are looking for an easy way to begin and achieve awesome results with instant gratification (hey, don’t we all???), I think you’ll fall in love with the Clean Color Markers much like I did. :)


P.S.  The colors are available in open stock at Ellen Hutson LLC, please scroll to the very bottom of this post for a list of colors I suggest starting out with.





Balloon Bunny


There’s just something so happy and charming about balloon animals, ya’ know what I mean?  They just make me smile… :) I do believe I squealed involuntarily when I saw this stamp set by Avery Elle at CHA this year…  I had to make an Easter card for my granddaughter with it, but I love that it has extra sentiments that are good for year round. *fist pump*


Traditional pastel color combos and I don’t typically get along, hence the departure towards something a tad different.

The background is a cute pattern from a large stencil I cut apart into smaller ones–reminded me of Easter eggs! :)



I kinda developed the design on the fly and left the camera running… Unfortunately my camcorder is having exposure issues… probably due to user error of one kind or another… Highly annoying.

Oh, and the Stickles were an after-thought… Sometimes you finish a card, think on it a bit, and later on you realize it really does need a little sumpin’… When in doubt, I often add Stickles. Why? No clue. Just seems to be my fall-back. *chuckle*

Have a fab weekend and a joyous Easter holiday!



Quickie Vellum Overlay




This was yesterday’s Hello, Monday over in the CLASSroom–I could make GOBS of these. LOVE!!!

And, don’t fall off yer chair… I made a colored card base instead of white… Ooooh, lolly! ;)
