PaperSmooches Sparks: Happy Birthday



Today's PaperSmooches Sparks Designer Draft challenge is a card highlighting my first time using Zig Clean Brush Markers.  Oh la la...I'm not normally a marker kind of girl, but oh how I love these vibrant colors. Ardyth and Tracey enabled me with their gorgeous cards using these markers.  An Amazon purchase and a few video tutorials later I was having fun using these!  Before I die cut the flowers, I blended a few colors on card stock and then die cut the flowers and stems a few times.  The sentiment was die cut, colored and then blended a bit to give it a bit of a distress feel.


This card features the following fabulous PaperSmooches goodies:

  13. I have yet to go down the road of markers, I think I'm fine with my water colour pencils for the amount of coloring I do... love this, as always, I'm inspired by the tag.
