Happy Day + ZIGs

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! Less than one year ago, I was scared of watercolors! I was scared of them! I threw away many projects, just because I was not happy with my watercolor skills. In fact, one of my goals last year was to work on my watercolor techniques! But when I got my hands on Zig Clean Color Markers, I fell in love!

Today, I paired up my Zig markers with the super cute Waffle Flower's Happy Day stamp set:

I struggle when it comes to shadows. The Zig markers help out so much with that! I grabbed three shades of brown to color in the bear image.

Start with the lightest shade of brown and color the outline of the image. Using water and a paintbrush, spread the color from the outside towards the inside of the image.

Do the same with the middle shade of brown.

Now add the darkest shade of brown around the outer edges and spread the color towards the inside.

Now it is time to color in the rest of the image. Please stop by the MarkerPOP blog to see the list of markers used for today's card. To finish of this card, the sentiment is stamped and embossed in white onto a black strip of cardstock.
