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.

Paired with ink blending and white space you have two modern whimsy cards!  Written and photos...
