Zig blender brush watercolor + stenciling ~ card tutorial.

 Hello.  For Technique Time at Unity, I share a way to use the Zig blender brush with watercolor along with a touch of stenciling accents for this tea or coffee themed card.

Sentiment:  I think you're amazing.

Using the Zig blender brush with watercolor accents is simple and convenient in card making.  It is especially helpful with the use of Zig clean color real brush marker pens.


Helpful tips:
Here are helpful tips for watercolor using the Zig blender brush.  First, stamp onto watercolor paper using waterproof ink.  I like to stamp on the smooth side of the paper for stamped projects.  Next, add outline touches of watercolor from Zig clean color real brush pens.  Then, using a wet Zig blender brush, blend out and move the watercolor from the stamp outline.  I used bold colors, but the same technique can be used with lighter shades.  Also, work in smaller sections before the watercolor dries.  Next, allow dry time or heat set.  For added accents, add a background panel with light stenciling.  Then, fussy cut or place the watercolor panel onto your card base, to finish.


I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
