I did a video for the Got Candy design (matching dies are HERE)… You can watch it in HD on YouTube HERE. And, if you have a spare second, I could use a thumbs up–I appreciate that so much!

 

Sorry about the audio on this–I got a new mic for my laptop and haven’t quite got the hang of the best recording settings yet… argh!

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. :)
