Distressed paper source

A while ago I experimented with zig clean color markers on this letterpress card I received in the mail that was purchased at Paper Source. I decided to continue the experiment by putting some distress micro glaze over the pink flower to keep it bright and then adding Distress stain and ink to the rest of the card. I finished it off with some shimmer spray just to see what it would look like.

Experimenting – Zig Clean Color and a Kristy Rice coloring book

fullsizerender-73

Artist Kristy Rice has a wonderful coloring book of flowers designed for watercolor. Here you can see my experimentation with that book and the Zig Clean Color markers. I tried different amounts of ink to water ratios as well as different levels of color saturation. Also you can see where I used wet marker on wet marker and where I let it dry completely before going back in.
