I can only speak for the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.
The are like a marker that has a fine tip paint brush-like tip.
It actually works like a paint brush then they are water soluble so you
can blend and move the color around with water.
I LOVE THEM!



Kurecolor are alcohol like Chameleon and Copics ..color range is about 135 colors +blender and the ones I use have a really fine bullet tip and a fatter bullet tip.. but its kind of a soft one so a cross between a bullet and a brush... if you buy the "refillable" Kurecolors they are more like Copic tips.. chisel and fatter point. I can refill mine.. they just aren't marketed that way lol

Beautiful Card Nana Donna. I love the bright colors.

So are the Zig Clean Pens water and not alcohol?

Here is my card made from Sketch #1. It also incorporates some of the extra credits such as using Vellum, Fabric, and a Hand-colored image.

I used a 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 white pre-made card base and envelope set from JoAnn Craft Essentials. The Pattern Paper is from a new BoBunny 6 x 6 Paper Stack from Hobby Lobby called "Altitude."

The digital image is a Mo Manning one called "Lets Chill..." and I've colored her with my Copic Markers. The image is cut with a rectangle Spellbinders "Nestability Die" and backed with papers from my scraps box. The layers were then put on part of a Gauze Bandage to add to the snowy look.

The Snow Flakes are cut from a Die Set by "Die-namics" from MY Favorite Things and were cut out of a heavy vellum that I bought one time at "Tuesday Morning" and never used. It's got some great "bright" colors in the package that I'll be sure to use on Christmas Flowers.

I have dotted the centers of the Snowflakes and parts of the background with "Rhinestones" by Gemstones from Hobby Lobby.

Thanks for looking, Dee

Hi ya all!
Hope everyone had a great long weekend.
Here is my sketch #3
I used a new technique I just learned on Sunday called Die cut inlay.
Here is a link http://www.jennifermcguireink.com/2016/09/inlay.html
So this card has all five elements of extra credit #1
die cut(background), machine die cut(white banner), stamped(flowers and happy birthday),
hand colored image(flowers), and fabric(yellow lace) TFL
Image

If you get a minute you really should go check out the link I posted
I can see that this would be a great technique for making backgrounds.

This is my card for Sketch #4. I wanted to make a shaker card with this die I recently bought and I decided to try it using Vellum. I'm not pleased with how it came out. In my opinion the vellum is too thick to easily see the sequins. I think it would have been better using a plastic of come kind.

Here are the supplies that I used:

Papers all from my stash.
Leaf Dies are from Gina Marie.
Small leaves are from an old punch I had.
Hello is a Die from Die-namics by MFT.
Sequins are from mixed boxes of Sequins from MFT.
The Frame Die is from Die-namics from MFT and called Gift Box Cover Up.
The buttons were in button box...not sure where I bought them.

Thanks for looking....Dee

I lost this the first time. :angry-tappingfoot:

This is my card from Sketch #2.

All papers are from my scraps and I used a yellow Copic Marker to color the centers of the flowers. I also used a Martha Stewart Large-Size Border Punch.

Thanks, Dee
