Easter Friends with Art & Graphic Pens

Hello there!  Not long till Easter and if like me you enjoy sending cards then you are probably starting to make them.

Here is a card made using the {Zig Art and Graphic} pens. These pens give great effects when you add water to them.  After stamping the image in black and embossing it with clear embossing powder I scribbled the brown pen on to a non porous surface.  Here I am using a glass mat.  Next I picked up some of the colour using the {Zig Waterbrush}

Colour in each of the bears applying more colour where you require shading until you have coloured everything in.  Mat the finished picture on to cardstock when dry.

The {Zig Art & Graphic} pens can create a mottled background too.  For this you need to colour a mixture of pens on to the glass mat then spritz it with some water.  Then gently lay your cardstock on top and the colour will transfer to it.  You will need to leave it to dry before you glue anything to it.

When it is dry then you can add some patterned paper and the topper and your card is finished.

Thank you for stopping by today
