Clean Color markers on Vellum

Clean color markers are a perfect medium on vellum!

Happy Happy Holiday weekend everyone!  The weather is gorgeous today with oodles of sun and just the right temperatures.  For those who are local, the Coffee, Cards and Coloring class on Monday (10am) has a couple of openings left.  And no this isn’t a Copic only class or even Copic expert class…any coloring medium you love will work perfectly for this class using Tim Holtz’s Coffee blueprint stamp set.  You can check out the deets on my Upcoming Classes page.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m trying to get my life organized (again) which is an ongoing theme for me.  I’m surprised I’ve made it this far into adulthood and managed to get most everything done and on time.  Though I often wonder, do I really have to walk into the same room 65 times before I remember why I went to that room in the first place?  But alas, for today’s post, I found another hidden treasure on one of my camera cards using the Zig Clean Color Markers.

This stamp is from Rubberneck Stamps.  I stamped on Vellum with Versamark and then heat embossed with Wow’s silver pearl powder.  Of course it helps when putting the card together not to put the adhesive on the front side of the card…hence all of the decorative white dots (hiding my oops)

I’ve colored on vellum numerous times with Copic markers and was never completely happy with the results.  I think the colors were too dulled down, but whatever the reason, never really liked the results.  However, with these Clean Color Markers….love love love the vibrancy of the colors and how well they show through the vellum (remember when coloring on vellum, color on the backside of the image).  Just a little less water next time for me when creating the background as the vellum on this one warped more than I wanted it to.

Same stamp just chose different color palette for the flowers and opted for a stamped background of music notes.
