One Layer Beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers

 Hello and Happy Easter to you and yours.  Todays project is lovely, simple, easy and one-layer. Watercolor paper is my first choice when using just about any water-based medium because it doesn't warp easily.  I wanted to layer the sentiment over the flowers, so I stamped the floral image and heat embossed over it, then added color.  I did it in that order so that I wouldn't have to wait for the flowers to dry before stamping and heat embossing.  If the flowers were still wet at all, I may not have achieved a clean stamped sentiment and the powder would have stuck everywhere, effectively ruining the project (no bueno).

Here is the link the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.
