First I want to say that today's card REALLY shocked and horrified me! Last week the Tim Holtz blog had some tutorial where they made the same tag with all different kinds of paper to show just how different a look each paper produced. What a GREAT idea! So I tried that and I must say I was VERY surprised about the results.
Since it's Thursday I need to show a technique. The technique I'm showing today is the Wrinkle Free Distress Technique. I'm not really doing it exactly right though but there is a tutorial on SplitCoastStampers if you want to check it out. Basically what I think is the whole point of this whole blog post is to show you how the different papers look. The technique doesn't really count for anything so that's why I wasn't really concerned about doing it "properly".
So here goes:
The papers I used were Glossy paper, Watercolour paper and Stampin Up! Naturals White and Whisper White paper. I kept them in the same place throughout this tutorial so you can tell which is which. Now normally I would have just used Whisper White paper which is my normal paper to stamp with so I was expecting that to work out the best. Here are the 4 tags. See the glare on the Glossy paper? Get used to that:
Technique Junkies (I used the same 3 colours as in the tag) to get this:
So here are the cards:
This is the card made with the watercolour paper and still my favourite on the cardstock (Rich Razzleberry and Lucky Limeade.)
Anyhow next time rather than reaching for your normal everyday paper try using a few more to see which YOU like best!
