No Coloured Cardstock, No Problem! Using You white Cardstock Gives A Stunning Look.

 Well Hello There, Sometimes we think we have to every coloured card stock under the rainbow, but today i want to show you a beautiful technique which blows that out of the park. I have simply used Neenah Cardstock 110lb to create the die cuts and a blending brush and my inkpads. I love the soft look it adds to a design.

Another Look At Water Colouring With Distress Ink, Changing Your Sub Straights...….. What Happens ?

Good Morning / Afternoon or Maybe Evening. Welcome A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog on using your Distress Inks to water colour with, and how easy the result were. I fell in love with the technique and have many more examples planned. I decided to change my water paper as Bristol (Strathmore) can work out expensive and many of you including me have far more standard water colour paper. I didn't expect any real difference, but I was very wrong! Here's both card projects. The top is on standard water colour paper smooth side and the bottom Bristol Smooth. When working on...
