Coloring with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers // The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Hi there! 

I hope you're having a great Saturday so far. Today I'm joining in on the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge with Kathy Racoosin! If you're unfamiliar with this awesome challenge, here's the quick rundown: 

The premise of “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” is to color something everyday even if it’s for five minutes. However, feel free to jump in or out as time permits. Any coloring medium is welcomed.

You should have arrived here from Reverse Confetti, but if not, no worries! The hop list is included at the end of this post.

I'll be honest with you...I'm not much of a colorer...and when you see my creation for today you'll know why. LOL. I've always shied away from these challenges but decided to push myself. Although I was feeling a little down about the images I colored, it just shows that I need more practice which is why this challenge is perfect!

Anyways, here's my bright & colorful craft supplies colored with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers:

The images I used are from my Make Something Beautiful stamp set. I thought it would be perfect for today's occasion. I also recently added the coordinating die set to my shop so it was a win-win! I used a variety of different colors for these images and a waterbrush pen to help blend them. The key to using these markers is Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. On this paper they blend beautifully! I also added a few details using a white gel pen...it really finishes them off.

Anemone 3 Ways by Jill H. // Ombré, Colored Pencils, + Off-Set Stamping

Good morning! I hope your weekend was awesome and afforded you some crafty time! :) 

I'm back today sharing a few more cards I created with the latest Right at Home release! I hope you've had a chance to check out the whole release, and if not, hop on over to do so HERE! FAN-tastic! :)

All of these cards are made with the super easy to use Anemone set! It's a lovely set that can be used in quite a variety of ways. This first card, is one of my favorites! I really enjoy how simply this set can be used to make a sweet card!

For this card, I masked off a scalloped circle and then simply used a ombre ink pad to stamp the one solid flower image multiple times. I then heat embossed the sentiment from the Make Something Beautiful set and trimmed to fit. I stitched the panel to some orange cardstock, added some hemp twine, and adhered everything with dimensional foam adhesive. Sunshine! :)

Keeping things super easy, you could probably have a set of four-six cards in 30 minutes. I'm all about easy sometimes, and this set makes a quick impact.Or if you find yourself with more crafty time, take it up a notch and add a few more details, like I did with these below!

I kept the overall design the same, but changed up the colors and sentiments. I used a white pigment ink pad and different colored dye ink pads for these. To finish them off, I added some stitches, sequins, and colored in the Color In Sentiments (go figure!) with Prismacolor pencils.

The kraft cardstock added a warm feel to all these, and easily mixes up the way to use your stamps!


For this next card, I used various shades of inks to create the Anemones with the layering technique. I decided to line up some of my flowers exactly with the layering stamps and slightly offset some too. I like how it came together and on the pale gray cardstock.

I'm not normally a purple person, but these flowers call for it. ;)

I inked the previously released RAH set, Make Something Beautiful for a few of these cards. Love these sentiments for crafty friends!

Sending another big crafty thank you to Nicole, for having me along for the fun! And thank YOU for joining me here on RAH blog again today. :)

Watercolor & Pigment Ink Anemone Cards by Jill H.

Good morning, and happy Monday to everyone!

I'm beyond excited to be here today sharing a couple cards I made for the newest Right at Home release! This release is full of flowery goodness! :)

This first card I made with the lovely new Anemone set. This set could not be any easier to stamp in layers. Things line up so easily. For me, this is a huge bonus because I sometimes struggle with layering sets. This new RAH set makes it effortless.

Today, I thought it would be fun to share a watercolored card, showing the versatility of this set. I love that you can layer stamp this card and also use the flowers on their own for different techniques.

I masked off a sentiment area, and then I white embossed these flowers. Once cooled, I watercolored them using Kuretake Gansai Tambi Pearl paints. The mica in this shimmers and pops these flowers right off the card! DE-lightful! :) I finished off this card simply by just adding a couple stitched rows.

I think it turned out lovely, and I cannot wait to pop it in the mail! <3

Next up, is a card I made using the layering parts of the Anemone set. As mentioned previously, it is super easy to get the stamps lined up exactly. Sometimes I like them offset a wee bit, to create a different overall look as well.

For this card, I stamped the the flower outlines in color and the bulk of the flower fill in white pigment. I enjoy how all the inks pop on the kraft cardstock.

To finish off the card, I stamped the leaves in green. I then added a few sparkly sequins, some stitching, and voila!

For both of these cards, I used sentiments from the previously released RAH set, Make Something Beautiful. A perfect set to make crafty friends a card. :)

I hope you have a chance to check out all of the new Right at Home release! Big inky hugs to Nicole, for having me along to celebrate her designs! I've had such fun using all these RAH stamps this past month, and I look forward to sharing more in a couple weeks!
