The following lovely creation has been crafted by Steph Ackerman.

Steph has used embossed butterfly vellum. From here she has coloured in the reverse of the butterfly with ZIG Scroll & Brush Markers. Steph then glued the vellum around the edges onto some cardstock and hey presto this is the finished result...

Have a great weekend everyone and for more exciting products from ZIG take a look at our shop site.

One more post from our Easter Theme...

This is cracking - It really is an eggcellent idea... I couldn't resist :) Here is what Margie says...

With Easter coming very soon, I thought I'd take some plastic eggs and do a quick but simple decor using KURETAKE ZIG® 2-Way GlueChisel Tip and ZIG Art & Graphic Twin markers. This is what I came up with...

I brushed some Gesso onto the eggs. It took about two to three coats. Make sure you dry between coats for good coverage.

Next I used ZIG Art & Graphic Twin set of four Kind Hearted Tones purple and pink markers to color the eggs. I love how it covers the surface and such beautiful vibrant colors!

With the ZIG 2 Way Glue Chisel Tip, I drew lines for the pink and dots for the purple egg. Your tip will catch color so I swipe the tip on a scrap piece of paper and it transfers all that color doesn't take much. Then I covered the area with fine glitter of a similar color for a monotone effect.

Let the glitter dry. In the meantime, I created a simple egg stand using a 2 x 6" strip of patterned paper cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ Edgeabilities® border die and adhered the ends to create a ring.

Here's a second look...

Thank you Margie :)

Hello you lovely lot :)

Hope your all having a great week.

Continuing with our Easter theme we have a very adorable Easter Basket which has been created by Italian design team member Miria Molinari. Miria has used a selection from our Zig Art & Graphic Twin to colour in the stamped image and the Zig H2O Brush over the top. I think this overall is so cute and really effective.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

More blog posts to follow soon. In the mean time though if you would like to see more from our range of products then please visit the shop site :)

She has used Zig Writer in Black, Zig Brushables in Pure Pink, Lunar Lavender, Pure Yellow and Spring Green. Also used is the Zig Art and Graphic Twin in Cornflour Blue, Zig Calligraphy in Silver and the Zig H2O Waterbrush in Medium Tip.

Next we have Steph Ackerman who has used Zig Scroll & Brush Marker  to colour and add sparkle with the Zig Wink of Stella pen on the dots of the egg to create this very themed easter card.

As always we encourage our design team members to produce other creative goodies using our products.

Today on the 7th of March is World Book Day, so the Kuretake Design Team decided to celebrate by making lots and lots of bookmarks. 

Becki Wagner has created this gorgoues set....

My niece is like me in that she is an avid reader. I took the challenge one step further by making a companion reading list. That way she can keep her place and jot down the books she has read this year. When looking online for ideas, I found a cute pattern to simulate and that got me thinking. Why not just make a black and white drawing so she can color it anyway she wants. So out came my ZIG Memory System® Millennium pen.

We have a few more bookmarks from our design team that will be shown over the weekend..then onto some Easter inspired crafting! :)
