Watercolor Tips and Tricks with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers

Hello, everyone! I’m back with another project for my Altenew Educator classes. These techniques are from the class “Creative Coloring with Erum.” I highly recommend this class! I love saving pictures of fun color schemes etc. For all the details, check out my YouTube video.

This picture is my inspiration for this project. I fell in love with this fun look.

First, I white heat embossed the flowers and leaves onto Canson XL watercolor paper. Then, I die cut these images.

Next, I used the Zig Clean Color markers to color the first set of flowers in orange and pink. I colored the second set of flowers with red and purple.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment with black ink and added a black card stock backing.
