I need Your Advice

Hi everyone

This is a really quick post and wonder if you can all help with a little bit of advice.

I have emailed a few of you and thanks for your replies about what paper you use.

So my question to all my bloggie friends that colour with alcohol markers - what paper or papers do you use?

What is your go to paper for your images and your colouring?

Thanks so much.

Happy crafting.

  2. I use 160gsm Text and Graphics from from Staples for both printing images and backing papers and for stamping I use promarkers and it doesn't bleed. It is a very good price to at around £6.50 for 250 sheets.xxx

  7. I answered in the email but here's more info and web addresses.

    Love the X-Press It Blending Card which you can order from Oozak.com or copicmarker.com and then I love the Neenah Solar White paper. These are more expensive but so worth it for the smoothness, weight and blending. I love both of these papers but for me the Neenah will not go through my printer for the digi images.

  8. I'd love to know how you like these pens.
    I saw these sets at Joanns and wondered about them.
    I'll have to check out the staples paper, too.
    I haven't tried digi stamps but have tons of physical stamps.
    Have fun with your toys!!

Hi Karon:) I LOVE to use the Gina K Design Pure Luxury card stock and the weight is 120lb and the pack comes with 25 sheets. i love to use these with copic markers and you can find the card stock at www.ginakdesigns.com. The card stock is super smooth and super thick and perfect for the copic!!!!
