New Markers, New Markers!

Yes, I'm excited, cuz I finally got some new Zig Clean Color Watercolor Markers. I got the Assorted set with black and 5 other colors and they are gorgeous!

I tried a technique I saw online where you stamp with a solid stamp and then add in details with the markers, but it didn't work as well as it did for the lady on the video. 

So I used the outline stamp and that worked so much better. I needed the extra outline to know where to put my shadows/darker colors. I loved these markers with my Peony stamp from Altenew.

If you look closely, you'll see the one on the left is without the outline and the one on the right is with the outline stamped in the same marker. The one on the right is my fave. Great colors with these watercolor markers!

Have you used these markers? So far, they seem like a good investment, though I won't be buying the huge set. I think these 6 will do me fine.

Happy Friday!
