Koi coloring brushes - my new colors and the Zendala Dare 19

I just got some new colors of the Koi Coloring Brushes from Sakura and I had to give them a test run in this little Zendala. I used the Zendala posted by Erin from The Bright Owl - This is the Dare #19.

When I first get new markers I try them out on a plain piece of white paper (in this case an index card). Then I try out using the colorless blender and also using them with water brushes. Using the Koi markers as watercolors gives them a whole different look. After I had my washes down I tried out a variety of colored Micron Pigma pens on top to see which color worked best with the washes. I settled on the burgundy pen.

Thank you Sakura!
