Here's the project I made with Theresa's set called Winter Trees. I also included a tutorial for coloring my image with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
Step 1: Stamp image with white pigment ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder on watercolor paper.
Step 2: Using the Zig marker in Haze Blue, apply ink from the marker to the sky.
Step 3: Using a waterbrush, blend the ink color.
Here's what mine looked like after I did the blending.
Step 4: Add a darker blue (Shadow Mauve) to the corners and edges of the trees.
Step 5: Once again, blend with a water brush. Add more ink if needed.
Step 6: Add Emerald Green and Green ink to a palette, and use a waterbrush to apply to the trees and ground.
Step 7: Using a water brush, add just a little bit of English Lavender to the sky.
Here's a close up of the watercoloring and I added a touch of Stickles to it.
