I'm in love...

I'm in love with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. Seriously in love, they're amazing! It was a long three week wait from Japan for them to arrive, but totally worth it if anyone's still thinking about it. They have really great bold colours, and they watercolour up so beautifully and smoothly. The thing I've never quite liked about watercolour pencils and Inktense pencils is that I find it hard to blend the pencil marks. You definitely don't get that with these. So yeah, I love them!

Here's a card I made this week using the pens, and the stamps are Avery Elle Tweet Tweet.

The sentiment is actually from Avery Elle Swim Team, I haven't used these stamps properly yet, they're next on my list for using with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens!

Make the Day Special - September Challenge

The challenge at Make the Day Special this month to use an autumn colour combos. I've had a go at the third set, inspired by some autumn leaves:

The stamps are Lawn Fawn (coloured with Inktense pencils) and my favourite Mama Elephant banner (coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush). I've watercoloured a background with the Zig pens too, and then Die-Cut the zig-zags with a MFT Die-Namics die. This is a card for my mother-in-law, we're off for birthday afternoon tea later today!
