Believe it or not, but last week I ran out of coloring cardstock; I’ve been using the Gina K Cardstock (I think it’s called Pure Luxury) pretty much ever since I started coloring with Copics, so I thought it was about time trying something new. I had read that Cryogen White is ideal for Copics, so I went ahead and ordered some sheets from the Paper Temptress. Conveniently the owner lives here in San Jose and I was able to pick up the cardstock on my way back from work the same day. How cool isn’t that?!
Here’s a close up of the first stamped image I have colored using Cryogen White Irridescent. It’s quite different from the Gina K cardstock, and it’ll probably take a bit of time to get used to it, but I already now love the light sparkling surface. Here’s the finished card:
