It's Saturday and I'm feeling chatty so let's talk shall we?
You know these Zig Clean Color markers are all the rage right now. I was like "ooh pretty" I need these. Then I went and looked at the price tag and choked on my coffee. What in the what?! I know I'm a cheap skate but Damn, Gina.
Thankfully I was able to find them for 50% off on Amazon. Yes! Sales!
Then I waited 600 years for them to arrive.
six. hundred. years.
Actually it was about a month but in crafty time, totally 600 years.
They finally came! Whoop! Whoop!
Then I spent an enormous amount of time opening every single one from it's plastic wrap.
The perforations were a joke. A mirage of hope that you can easily get into your new toy and play immediately. They were little marker straightjackets.
I bought the 36 set.
It took me an hour to open all of them using a pair of scissors and an exacto knife to extract them.
I love that you can get them individually though. Since they aren't refillable it's awesome that you can just replace the ones you use the most.
I will say though they are completely worth the money and the marker surgery I had to perform. In fact, I'm in love. We're getting married and hope to have a rainbow of children soon.
They blend really easily. I've heard that a lot of people prefer to use them without water but I actually like them with. It just gives a good final blend to everything.
I'm sharing this card over at the A2Zscrapbooking blog today but I wanted to share here too.
You can head over to the blog to see all the details of how I made it. I'm also using some new Hero Arts stamp sets. More flowers, can't help myself :)
Thanks for stopping by!
