Water Colour Paper with Nellie and Tilda




Hi all sorry about the photos it is a dark miserable day here in Bristol and I can't see it getting any better!!

But I really wanted to share this with you, one of my favorite designers Kimmie over at Kraftin Korner is always talking about her favorite SU watercolour paper that she uses to stamp and colour onto, and her colouring is awesome.

So yesterday I decided to go and buy some water colour paper from an art shop, let me start by saying it's not cheap but my first attempts with it yesterday with my whispers watercolour pens were fairly good even if I do say so myself!!

I bought 300gsm which if you are worried about the paper bending it is more like card, but when you use it, does not bleed or bend like ordinary card, I also used my water brush and the paper just absorbs the colour.

I have same lovely water colour pencils that my hubby bought me so I am going to try these today.

Have a good day Sue :o)
