Breaking in the Fab Paper


Ok, I did it! I finally was brave enough to try using the Fabriano Medivalis Paper I had to have! I am a chicken(should have made a chicken card) I was afrais to use this expensive watercolor paper. Its very high quality and I was afraid of messing it up. In fact, I did mess one up. The second one I tried I goofed it and now I had to throw it away. This card uses the Easy elegance SU set and the colors are Apricot, Red, Celery and Mustard. I used markers to color the stamps and then misted the stamp before applying it to the paper. Jody Morrow taught me that trick and it usually works just fine.I also used an Amuse sentiment and black ink.
