Zig Clean Color Marker and Finetec Gold Watercolor Colored Goldfish

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. Our challenge is on Hand Coloured Images. I prefer coloring my images except if the challenge sponsor only provides pre-colored images. Our sponsor for this challenge is Beccy's Place. I printed the image on Canson watercolor paper. I printed the fish twice, one larger than the other. I was going to use both of it on a card but my design went on a different direction, making me end up with two cards. Not too bad, right?

I colored the fish using Zig Clean Color markers and adding Finetec Gold watercolor. I fussy cut the fish, leaving a white border around it.

For the first card, I created a fish bowl scene using the Cricut Design Space. I blended inks to the greenery. I spritz some shimmer spray to the blue background paper. I embossed Hero Arts Sand embossing powder to the fish bowl ground. I created a shaped card using the CDS. I heat embossed the sentiment on a cloud bubble sticker. I added Ranger Enamel Accents for the dots of the speech bubble.

For the second card, I blended ink on the negative cut created on my first card with the fish bowl cut. I splattered water then picked it up with a paper towel to create water droplets. I embossed a white shimmer card with an embossing folder. I added a wooden embellishment for a sentiment which I backed with a black shimmered card stock just to make the letters pop.

I enjoyed creating these two cards. I enjoyed coloring the fish. I also enjoyed looking through my stash and using products that I rarely use these days (the sticker and the wooden embellishment).

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your hand colored images at the challenge blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!

  1. You did a great job colouring the fish Maria Giselle, I love the vivid orange and the gorgeous sparkle from the gold. The fish bowl shape of the first one is really cute, and I like the play on words. I also like the way you spattered the water on the background of the second card, it's a great effect. What a bonus to end up with two cards instead of one!

  2. I absolutely love the fishbowl and all the decoration to go ith it :)

    Great work :)

  3. I adore your card Maria, such wonderful colouring and fabulous fish bowl shape!
