May your every dream come true !

Hi there!

I've been playing around with my Zig clean color markers... and I think I am feeling , slowly but surely, more comfortable using it.

Maybe the most important thing I have learned is that you have to treat it very gentle ;)

Because I love bold graphic shapes and colors, I think I tend to overdo it ! So too much of a good thing is not always a  good thing, definitely in the case of water coloring!

Here's some coloring I did during the week, which made it to a card!




A no fuss card stamped with a Casual Friday set called Wonderful Words.
I added some gold liquid pearl to the flower centers for interest.

Linking my card to the Colour q  challenge to use black, white and one color of choice.


                                                      

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful card, you should do more cards with watercolour, you have a touch that comes through in all your cards. Never overdone, perfect layout and colour. Always

This is so very pretty. I have also noticed that my water coloring with Ziggies comes out so bright--you have done a great job of getting some lighter shades in as well. Thanks so much for playing along at ColourQ this week.

Just gorgeous Hannelie! Looks like you are quickly mastering the Zig markers - beautiful color and shading.

Geri said...

BEAUTIFULLY colored and shaded! By the looks of these pretty flowers, I'd say that you have definitely reached the Zig coloring comfort zone! Nice bits of gold liquid pearls.

I often feel like I overdo elements on my cards. I sometimes try to follow your CAS lead, but I'm rarely successful. I'll keep trying, though, because I love that look!! I like the simplicity of this card, with the focus on the sentiment.

Ja, vrou so het die dae alweer verby gehardloop en dis alweer Sondagaand, maar ek kan nie gaan slaap voor ek nie nou by jou uitgekom het nie!!! Ek beplan al van Maandag af om al my besoeke klaar te maak, maar natuurlik het als alweer voorgeval wat my weggehou het daarvan om by almal uit te kom - van 'n onbeplande konfytkokery met druiwe wat ek persent gekry het, tot brood bak, tot kinders wat my rekenaar gebruik as ek daar wil wees en dan natuurlik maar die alledaagse takies wat mens besig hou!!! Maar nou is ek reg vir 'n lekker fees vir die oog en baie inspirasie om more weer self iets te maak en my kaartjies te post wat ek so tussen-in gemaak het!!!
Jou inkleurwerk lyk verskriklik mooi, vrou!! Ek sien almal gebruik deesdae die Zig markers, maar wat is die kans nou dat ek dit hier in George sal kry, ne (of enigsins in die hele SA, maar dalk moet ek tog by Scrap-a-doodles gaan kyk of hulle nie dalk so oulik is om dit aan te hou nie!!! Mens weet nooit wanneer jy 'n lekker verrassing kry nie!!!!) Jou pragitge blomme is lieflik so teen al die wit en die sentiment is pragtig!!! Baie mooi met die swart raampie om alles perfek saam te bind!!! 'n Baie spesiale kaartjie wat so gepas sal wees om vir iemand te gee wat graad vang, ne!!!! Dit lyk regitg pragtig, vrou!!!
Groete
