Hello ladies,

I am curious to know what you ladies find is the best cardstock for stamping on? I find that the cheap stuff I use doesn't like it if you make it too wet when stamping and colouring.

Embossed card

Not sure if the embossing has scanned very well or not..... the thinking of you piece is a foiled message from Craftwork Cards, the bottom panel is actually a pale sage green and the dark looking strips down the sides are mirri card. Thanks for looking.

As promised, another card, I can't remember what brand the stamps is, maybe Elzybells? Coloured in with watercolour pencils and water brush. Quickutz wording and Doodlebug ribbon stripe paper and sequins.

Have a good weekend all.

Thank You card

Good morning blogland. Thought I'd post another card. Hero Arts Stamps, Dandelion on the front and I can't remember the name of the stamp on the background, but it is Hero Arts again and I used Versamark. Velum and brads and blue bazill on the base and finished with green ric rac from stash. Hero Arts greeting. The scan hasn't come out very well, but there is stickles on the flower head.

I will probably post another card later today. Have a good day!
