Zig Clean Color Markers & Simon’s February 2020 Card Kit Stamps!

Hello, all! Kristina here with some card kit inspiration! The February 2020 Card Kit is packed with fun things to do with the new Window Frames stamp set. In fact, I’ve seen so many amazing cards online using the stamp set! I decided to challenge myself to use the stamp set in a new way. Here we go!

For my card, I turned the floral frame image in the stamp set on its side and stamped it in brown waterproof ink on Bristol paper. I cut the “thank you” stamp apart so I could mount the words side by side for stamping, and then stamped it and a secondary greeting inside the center area of the floral frame.

Then I started painting! I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush for all of the watercoloring. These markers work so beautifully on Bristol paper!

I finished off this simple card with a dashed line drawn with a 0.3 Copic Multiliner pen and a t-square ruler.

Thanks for stopping by today! You can get the February 2020 Card Kit HERE, or subscribe for this kit and future kits HERE.
