Tuesday's Tip

While making cards for PSL (it is finally over!) and other projects, I was grabbing various white card stock bases. Obviously, different weights and textures of card stock will take media differently. I had been using smooth coated card stock for stamping and embossing. But, I should have paid closer attention to my mail art postcard bases as I used Pan Pastels to add color. Just a reminder that the type of card stock matters. Sometimes when we are in a creative frenzy, we tend to grab our usual materials. Take a few moments to think about the coloring media you will be using and pick appropriately.
