Freehand Thanks | ft. Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers


Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by, I hope you are having a great day.

Recently, my Mom went on vacation to visit some family on the island. She had a fantastic time and wanted to express her gratitude. My Aunt has always been a huge supporter of my work and any art that I put together. So when Mom asked me to create a thank you card for her, I wanted something that I knew they would both love.


To begin, I roughly sketched in the horizon and the scene using a regular pencil. I then used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to add the islands then my Prisma waterbrush to pull out the colour. Once that was dry, I added the water and again pulled out the colour; always being careful not to trap the pencil under the colour. Once it's trapped it's not coming out.

I erased any pencil marks and added darker shades of each colour to give it some depth. Finally I sketched in the palm trees, right over top of the scene that was all ready there. The great thing about these markers is the ability to layer colours.

Once everything was dry, I used my light and medium grays to add some shadows. I then stamped the sentiment using CTMH's Archival Black ink.

To put the card together, I adhered the watercoloured piece to black cardstock to give it a border and then put the whole thing on a standard A2 sized card base.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own.
