Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Friends/Super Hero

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our Masculine Challenge !

It's Wednesday and 

Yes, we have a new challenge over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge !

The theme this week is 

Friends/Super Hero

The Design Team are this week showcasing Mama Elephant products.

For this week's challenge, as always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a fabulous $50 voucher for the Simon Says Stamp Store!

For this card I tried out the new Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  Personally I wouldn't say there was a lot of difference between these markers and Distress markers apart from the Zig markers have a real brush tip so they feel like a paintbrush whereas the Distress markers have a normal fibre tip.  The Zig markers are also a lot more vibrant in colour.

As for how you colour with each of them, I find it a lot easier to scribble on an acrylic block and paint  with them using a brush and water.

I love the Zig markers for their vibrancy in colour and the Distress markers for their more muted colours and will enjoy them both depending on the type of card I want to make.

As with Distress markers, you can buy the Zig Clean Color Markers individually at Simon Says Stamp and I would recommend just buying a couple to try first or start with the 12 pack which has great colours in it to start off with.

You can see a list of everything I used below !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you make !

Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a great day !
