I love the sweet skunk image from Little Stinker and thought it would be dun to pair up with the big, bold greetings from the Celebrate stamp set.
I wanted to also use the words from Celebrate to add texture to the watercolor I have behind the skunk. To do this, I used my Zig Clean Color markers to "ink" my sentiment stamp (which says "just because"); I applied the color from the markers onto the face of the stamp and then spritzed the ink-covered stamp with a light amount of water to get the color moving.
I stamped the sentiment onto the watercolor paper and repeated the ink-applying process multiple times until I had a few "just because" sentiments on the background.
I then watercolored over the words with the same two markers I used for the stamping. I applied the color this time by scribbling areas of color onto the paper and then blending everything out with my water and brush. I also colored in the skunk with Zig markers and die cut it out with the coordinating Little Stinker dies.
I love how bright and bold the colors are on this card. The colors allow the dark colored skunk and strong sentiment to pop and stand out beautifully! I also really love how the texture of stamping the text into the background of the watercolor really adds some great interest to the overall design.
I hope this has inspired you to try not only stamping with Zig Markers, but also gave you ideas for using the Little Stinker and Celebrate stamp sets from Neat & Tangled!
Thanks so much for stopping by and spending your Thursday with me... I'll see you again very soon!
