Water colors!!

Hello Crafty Friends!!!

I'm soooo loving all the fabulous new goodies in Butterfly Reflections, Ink store.
I treated myself with some crafty shopping spree for my Birthday!!!
I like to follow latest trends and I have been enjoying all beautiful water colored creations all over the blogland. 
I was not sure if I have the skills for it....... but finally I got myself some ZIG Clean Color Brush markers ..YAY!!!
I have to admit that I had so much fun.... the ZIG Clean Color Brush markers are really very easy to use!

I used the new Altenew Wild Hibiscus stamp set for all these cards.
As a first timer..I played safe , just heat embossed the floral image using WOW opaque white EP.
Then I simply colored the blooms with ZIG markers and water brush.

For the sentiment I combined a stamp from the same Altenew set and THIS Wplus9 set.
The patterned paper is from Avery Elle.

This card is for the following challenges...
Crafty Gals Corner - Anything goes.
Melonheadz Friends Challenge - Hand colored image.

 For the next card I picked the beautiful butterflies from the stamp set.
A clean and simple thank you card!!!
I did the same for this card, heat embossed and watercolored with Zig clear brush markers.
For this sentiment I used Paper Smooches stamp and the sub sentiment from Altenew Wild Hibiscus 

This card is for the following challenges...
Fab 'n' Funky - Things with wings.
Love to Scrap - Anything Goes.

 Here is my final card for today...
I used another gorgeous image from Altenew Wild Hibiscus set.
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches and the patterned paper is from Avery Elle.
I also stamped the floral image on the card base.

This card is for the following challenges...
Try It On Tuesday- Sending flowers.
Crafting from the Heart -  Anything Goes.
Crafting with an Attitude -  Anything Goes.

I used one of my favorite embellishments for all three cards.... Diamonds are Girl's best friend sequins.

Zig Clean Color brush markers are fabulous, blends very easily and colors stays very vibrant.
 I hope you all like the cards as much as I do!! 

Make sure to checkout BRI Store for all amazing new products!!
