Bird Crazy Birthday Card with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers

I broke down and ordered the Zig Clean Color Brush Markers.  I had to.  I kept seeing so many wonderful projects and excitement over them, I just had to do it.  So I did!  Que the angels singing, bright lights.... I LOVE THEM! 

A couple of pointers.  Use Bristol paper.  I tried traditional watercolor paper by Canson my first time experimenting and I could not get the colors to move like I had seen everyone else doing.  The paper makes all the difference.   Be sure and dry your stamped image before you begin to color.  Yes, I know you seasoned stampers are probably keenly aware of that little fact, but I was not.  My last bit of advise.... PLAY!  this is so fun!  

The Tim Holtz bird crazy stamps are so much fun to color!  When I first laid eyes on this set, I thought they were strange birds, but the more I looked at them, the more I knew I NEEDED them.  They are so incredibly adorable!
