Quick Review: Zig Clean Colour on Kraft

Zig Clean Colour pens are all the rage at the moment, but I’ve seen very few reviews by amateurs. I decided to buy just a couple to test them before deciding whether to add them to my birthday list. I bought Peach Pink and Sugared Almond Pink as they don’t appear in any of the larger sets, and they looked like they’d match each other. I decided to try them out on Neenah Desert Storm kraft card – many colouring mediums get “lost” on kraft and I’ve never seen anyone else use Zig pens on kraft.

And my verdict? I absolutely LOVE these pens, which allow for really finely detailed painting with ease. These are most definitely going to be at the top of my list! I stamped the Hero Arts Delicate Blossoms image and embossed it with Wow! detail white embossing powder then spent a stress-busting hour colouring. This is the result:

The colours blend beautifully, and even the pale colour holds its own against the kraft (although, as ever, it doesn’t show too well in the photos).  I finished the card off with a die-cut fishtail flag (by Sizzix), a stamped greeting by Clearly Besotted and a little bit of bling. As it fits with the latest challenge over at Stamping Sensations (Anything goes with a stamp and a die) I’m going to make this my third & last entry over there.

Here are a couple of close-ups:
