My 1st Project using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens!!!

I am SO excited!!!  I have been eyeing the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens for what seems like ages and my birthday is on that is what my husband got me (of course, I had to order and they arrived this past Saturday.  At any rate, I played with them a bit and decided to make a card using them.  I was so inspired by Kristina Werner's  YouTube video here!  I decided to make it a "friendship card" for my dear friend Marti.  We have been best friends for 35 years!  Here it is!

I stamped my Altenew "Peony Bouquet" stamp set using some "Vintage Photo" Distress ink as my "Antique Linen" was too dry and I had to order a reinker for it.  I have to say that I am in LOVE with those brush pens!!!  I masked the image and did some "splatters" using one of my Gansai Tambi watercolor pans (I think it was a copper metalic) from my  water color set.

Here are a few more photos.

I hand-delivered the card to Marti a little while ago and she loves it!!!
