I was in the mood to get messy, LOL! Out came the color sprays for the clear embossed resist technique. I used Paper Temptress' HQ Watercolor Cotton paper for the first time and I am so impressed. It is a really thick, highly absorbent paper that takes well to inks, color sprays, watercolors, paints and watercolor markers as well. You can find it here, it's a bit difficult to find so do a search for watercolor paper. Don't forget to use code jk15 for 15% off your purchase.
