2012 new Catalog Product Shares

On Tuesday I shared a cute idea with you for using the NATURAL COMPOSITION SPECIALTY DSP (PG 162) from Stampin' Up! and the adorable LITTLE LABELS PUNCH PACK.  Today I have another tip to share with you for using this GORGEOUS paper!


Natural composition watercolor paper
The gorgeous new Natural Composition Specialty DSP has glossy raised patterns on it.. almost like it was embossed in versamark and clear embossing powder!!  So I decided to try watercoloring because the glossy raised portions will resist the ink.. anyway.. it turned out really neat!!!

I used my Aquapainter (pg 178) and the ink in the lids of my classic ink pads to do the watercoloring.

After I cut it into pieces, i added it to a couple cards featuring the new POSTAGE DUE stamp set (pg 108) (one of my very favorite items in the new catalog!)

Postage due natural composition 2

I stamped the Postage Due image onto WATERCOLOR PAPER with Soft Suede (above) and Raspberry Ripple (below)… just for a neat texture.
