Cardmaking, Innovations With Ardyth

3 Cards With Clean Color Real Brush Markers

Do you have some Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in your crafty stash that are feeling a little unloved because you need some new ideas? Or maybe you haven’t tried the Clean Color markers yet and you are wondering how to use them? Either way, we can help!

Good morning! Ardyth here with this month’s Innovations with Ardyth! Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers are water-based pigment markers with a genuine brush tip. They’re a great way to quickly color an image or create quick watercolor effects.

Unfortunately it’s been too long since I used mine so this month, I’m making 3 floral cards that all use my Zigs in some way.

I have a video that shows you a number of techniques that you can use with these markers, including full strength colouring, blending with water for a softer look, ‘smooshing’ a background and creating a splattered background.

If you haven’t used Zigs for a while, or if these markers are brand new to you, this video will inspire you to get them out and create beautiful cards!
