Many of you have some – or all! – of the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in your supply stash, and today I am going to share a starry night card idea, which features not only the Kuretake Zig markers, but their new Starry Colors watercolor palette too!

I wanted to pair these two watercolor sets together and create a gorgeous night scene for the little mouse that I grabbed from Avery Elle’s Storybook stamp set. There are quite a few other critters included in the Storybook stamp set, which gives you many options to swap the mouse with.

I love bold, bright colors and I love how by simply layering up the markers, you can achieve that saturation of color on your cards. And, if bold and bright aren’t your colors, you can use the Zigs to create lighter color tones as well!
