Music and Dance With The Paper Shelter

Thanks for popping into my Blog.

I a sharing my design team card for The Paper Shelter with you today.
This weeks theme is Music and Dance.

I have used
Spirit of the Woods
I am not sure what is going on with my camera but IRL the colours on this card are a lot more vibrant.
I coloured the image with copic markers.
And since it is pretty clean and simple there isn't much more to tell you about it so I will talk about the white cardstock....
Until recently I always used Gina K brand cardstock, but then I ran out and decided to have a look at other options that weren't going to kill me in shipping.
I bought some papers that are specifically designed for alcohol markers from a few different shops here in NZ.
Then my friend Trace asked me if I had tried the Warehouse Stationary cheap stuff.
I said no so she sent me some, when I say some I am talking a pack of 250 sheets!
I better like it I thought, but if not it would be useful for card bases.....
Well I love it!!!!!
And at only $35 for 250 sheets it is an absolute bargain
I can get my blending as good as I can on expensive paper, and because of the price I don't freak out if I stuff up an image when I am stamping YAY
So yep there you have it, a bit of a tip there for you NZ marker chickies out there.

Thanks loads for dropping by
