Get ready for the least informative demonstration EVER.
Look at these two colored images. They used exactly the same markers. I did them at the very same time so I'd do the light orange on one, light orange on the other and so on. But look, they are totally different looking. This is because one was on a slight cream colored paper and the other was on a bright white. Cream on the left, white on the right. The stippling background is the very same colors too. I found this to be really interesting. I personally prefer the coloring on the cream, which was news to me and I don't have any paper that color!
which brings me to the unhelpful part. I was given these images by a very kind blogger. She used them on her blog, I emailed and she sent them. I cannot find the envelope or remember her blog name! :( So I don't know what papers these are done on, what ink was used, what stamp this is, and most importantly who was so kind to send them to me. If you have any of this info please tell me.
ETA: The first comment on this post is from Leslie Miller of Running With Scissors who is the owner of this stamp! The image is by Stampendous and is retired. The paper is Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla and Whisper White. Thank you Leslie!
And in publishing news... Here's my pages from the current Take Ten magazine! Turns out I used cool caribbean on all of them!
I'm all those bug cards. :)
I'm the You're the best! card that is in the middle. I'm the cat card that is especially blurry. (just my photo is blurry, not in the magazine.
