Consider this...

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.

Hi, Erin! It's too funny that I should happen to wander over here now to check out your blog on the very day you posted this. It's almost spooky. That would be me who sent you these images! The paper is Stampin' Up!'s Very Vanilla and Whisper White. My blog is Running With Scissors... I posted a Thanksgiving card using this stamp and you commented that your mom loves chipmunks... The stamp is by Stampendous and probably no longer available. You did a beautiful job coloring them and it's very interesting to see the comparison! I'm glad you're enjoying the images!

Also, I'm sorry to hear about your food poisoning. I sure hope you feel better now. Your post about the Seasonings Greetings had me in stitches, too! Oh, my! That's hilarious! Sorry...laughing with you... Have a great day!

That is too cool that Leslie just dropped in and saw this stamped image. I just adore her work, too! Anyway . . . I was going to tell you it is probably very vanill and whisper white, as that is what most of us use on SCS in the Wish RAK group. Wow, I am getting better at guessing cs colors :) Kelly

What an interesting find...I knew the colors would be different on different types of paper...but not THAT different!

Congrats on the JJ design team...I haven't been around much due to a death in the family and I just found out! How cool...!
