I am extremley happy that for today’s card I got the chance to use my new ZIG Clean Color markers! I couldn’t help it not to try out these markers and even if I wasn’t able to get some of the rich colors, as they were all out of stock, I still had fun trying to combine the colors that I managed to get:)
I also experimented with this Versamark resist technique that I discovered by accident. Maybe it is not new at all, but for sure it is to me. I kept thinking that this effect can be achieved with other techniques also, like clear embossing, but what I like about this is that you can stamp a sentiment on top; if I would have used embossing powder onto my leaves there, I wouldn’t have been able to do that.
So I first stamped some leaves from the One with Nature stamp set by SSS with the Versamark. I then heat set the ink with my heat tool. Next, I grabbed a green marker and added color on top of the leaves and with a wet brush I spread the color around. I did the same with a brown marker for the other leaves too. To add a bit of contrast I used a blue marker on two of the corners.
I also did a lot of embossing and fussy cutting for the leaves & trees and adhered all down with some liquid glue. To decorate my layout I chose a bit of twine and sequins and my card was all done:)
Probably my layout it is a bit crowded, but I like the colors and the elements I’ve used so I decided to reproduce the layout onto a canvas, where I will have much more space to play. I think it will look so awesome onto my craft room wall 🙂
