Rainbow Watercolor Waterfall with Zig + Video

If you saw my post on Wednesday (clicky) then you know I have a second card and video to share with you today.  This card is even easier than the first one and it makes me feel like an artist throwing paint on a canvas.


My card was inspired by a card I did for StampNation called Watercolor Waterfall.   In that tutorial I showed how to create a colorful waterfall using dye inks and then asked members what medium they preferred for watercoloring.  I got lots of great answers and things to try, including samples from SusieQ.  Her Zig Clean Color markers achieved the look I was going for and that is why I finally caved and bought these to try.  Thanks for enabling me Susie!  

If you are a StampNation member you can see that tutorial and classroom samples by clicking HERE.

This card was made in a completely different way and sooooooooooo much easier.  Here is my short video showing you how I created this lovely wash.


I'm linking it up again with StampNation's Simple Sentiments challenge
