  3. Always wonderful coloring on cards done by the NN Design team. I look to this blog almost every day to see the great creations. For coloring, I used to use colored pencils with a blender pen for fine areas and chalk pastels or sponged ink for large areas that I want to have a softer feel. But I've started getting some Copic markers and love them. I am curious about the Zig Clean Colors too.

  16. Happy to see someone using the Zig markers.
    those are my favorite markers. Tried
    several of the other "big" brands
    and didn't have good luck (probably me,
    not the markers). Love the card.
