Zig Colored Flowers 3 Zig Colored Flowers: 7K Video Hop with Laura Sterckx

Today I have the honor of participating in a video hop to celebrate 7K Youtube Subscribers for Laura Sterckx!  If you don’t know her yet, you are in for a TREAT!

I’ve gotten to know Laura over the past several months and she is just a doll….she’s an 18 year old stamper, blogger, youtuber from Belgium.  Impressive, right?  I couldn’t help but fall head over heels for this gal, so you will be seeing more of her.  Promise!

To celebrate this milestone with Laura, I broke out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers (surprised?) and colored these amazing die cut flowers by Ellen Hutson.  View the video to see how easy it is to get an amazing result with these markers.

The next video on the hop is the amazing Debby Hughes!  Click here for that video.

Over the past month or so, I’ve used my Zig Clean Color Markers quite a bit.  I did a review on them, comparing different types of cardstock and showing you how I got started with colors here.

I did an easy watercolor technique here with a gorgeous background stamp from The Ton.

I made a quick and easy (and a bit neon) background here.

Here I made a Christmas in July card with non-traditional colors (which I’m a HUGE fan of!).

Currently, the Zig Markers are my coloring medium of choice, so you WILL be seeing more of them.  I just LOVE them!

Once I finished filming this video, I didn’t stop stamping with these supplies (like I often do!)- that video will be up on Monday!

I also made this card with inspiration from our challenge for Day 4 of our California Vacation at StampNation.  I have another post going up later today with more details on that AND your next clue for our Mystery Sponsor.

    interesting how the paste reacts differently on back vs. white card stock. I like the white affect better. Thanks for the inspiration.
