    I love this video & your cards, Dawn! I actually got the 24 set of Zigs because of seeing you use them & thankfully saw where you wrote that the key is using wc paper–what a difference! However, I have yet to make a successful background like you did here, but can’t wait to give it another try! Thank you for the wonderful inspiration!

    I’ve admired your water colored cards using Zigs for quite some time. So glad to get to watch you in action. I started with the 12 pack and now wish I had bought a larger set. I love the range of colors. Is there repetition of the original 12 colors in the larger sets?
    Thanks for sharing your technique on these beautiful cards.
