I have been eyeing the four florescent Zig Watercolor markers in my set of 60 for quite some time and finally I decided to use them on a card featuring Edward Elephant. This is an image from the digital set from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Edward Elephant St. Patty's Day #2. .
The colors appear less intense in the photo then they actually are. For some reason I always get a washed out look and this seemed to be the closest one I finally captured.
I colored the digital image in with the Zig Watercolor markers using the florescent colors of pink, yellow, orange and green. The elephant was colored in with the light gray. After the image was colored I die cut it with a scalloped circle die. I placed this on a black panel which was embossed using the Darice Honeycomb folder. I also die cut it with a cross stitched border die. This black panel was added to a similar green colored card base.
I thought that was just too plain so I die cut some zig zag chevrons from white card stock that I colored in first with the Zig markers of orange and yellow. These were added to the right and left corners. The card was finished by adding some tiny shamrock fingernail decals onto the black panel.
