A Bit of Experiment

Hello everyone! Happy Saturday!! It's been raining here in Sydney and it's soooo cold that I'm finding it hard to move around (just want to stay in bed, LOL!). Well, I somehow managed to do some laundry and a bit of cleaning/organising here and there.

I don't actually have a new card to post but I just have a bit of info to share. Last Thursday, hubby and I went to our LSS to just look around & buy myself some EZ mount for my UM stamps. (I don't normally go there 'coz I do buy my stuffs online) As I was finding some good buys, this A4 board caught my attention. It is smooth on both sides and it's 250gsm which I guess will be good enough for a card base. But will it be good enough for stamping and colouring as well?? So, I bought a pack and experimented on it this afternoon..

Here are the two images stamped onto the white cs that I bought with Memento Tuxedo Black. I coloured Giggling Tilda with Copics and Prismacolor pencils (with OMS). Here's the result:

If you want a vibrant look, use Copics..

for a softer look, use Prisma pencils.

This white cs is very potential!! :) I didn't have any problem with colouring or with bleeding inks. And it's so smooth and colours were easily being moved with the blending stumps when using with Prisma pencils and OMS. I still have yet to try it as card base but I think it will be good enough as well.
Okay, gotta do some stamping and cardmaking. I'll see you later with my next post.
God bless!
