Hip Hip Hooray

Happy Wednesday. I just wanted to share with you a quick card using the Zig clean color real brush pens and features the Neat & Tangled Big Top Birthday stamp. I have to say I really like these water based markers. I splurged and got the 80 pen set. I couldn't decide which colours to leave behind so it was easier just getting the whole set. 
I am not used to working with watercolor so I stamped the images and used embossing powder then heat set it so the watercolors can stay within its boundaries. 
Then I worked on the panel that was same size as the frame. With painters tape, I masked off the sun ray and ink blended it using distress ink. Afterwards, I flicked little splatters of colors by combining the zig markers with water. Lastly, I adhered the frame and images with foam tape and glued on some star sequins. 
That completes the card.
