CCC #167



It's time for a new Cue Card at CASology!
This week's Cue is:



The bird and sentiment are from a cling set called Birdie Conversation by Unity Stamps. A first use of my new ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers. What I learned right away is what every one else has said in their first use, need the right paper! My card today is on regular white heavy-weight cardstock. Being away this week it is all that I had to use.  I used two shades of blue on the belly and found it difficult to blend them together. When I was done to blend them without many supplies I used a Q-tip and a bit of water to smooth the transition between shades.  I love the feel of these markers and can't wait to learn how to use them more.



Pop over and have a look at what the rest of the Design Team has created to inspire you...




Guest Designer: Claire



This is also for Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Colouring Challenge Day 5. A little more colouring on the road this time using my new ZIG's!



I am aso submitting this to the Simon Says Anything Goes Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes!

This is so adorable, and nice job using those markers for the first time. I'm sure you will be hooked before long and a real pro.

What an adorable little bird and so fun that you got to try your Zig markers out for the first time. I really love mine! I have found that they don't blend well on card stock, but work really nicely on watercolor paper or Bristle board!

You've gotten 'ziggy' with it.. (sorry, couldn't help it). Sweet and silly image. Is this the equivalent to 'tipping cows?' Love this CAS card. Bev
