One of my passions is colouring in.  I have about four Adult Colouring books at home and another at my Mum's for when I go visit her!  One of the new Sale-a-bration (SAB) products that will be available to earn FREE (with a $110 NZD Order) from January 4th, is a pack of Designer Paper called "Inside the Lines".  You get 12 sheets, 3 each of four designs, and a little goes a long way!  You can use a variety of different colouring products on this lovely paper, but I wanted to see how it would stand up to water colour.

As you can see by my finished card, it stood up very well to water.  I used an Aqua Painter to colour, picking up ink from my ink pad lids and using a colour wash to fill in the main images.  Once dry, I went back in with more colour to add dimension and shading.  The DSP did warp, but not as much as I thought it would.  Once it was completely dry, I applied fast fuse generously to the back and adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card.  This helped helped to flatten the paper and keep it that way.  I then trimmed the image panel to the size I wanted for my card front.

I have seen vellum banners used on cards and never tried one myself.  I love how this turned out.  I did use Staz On to stamp and it probably would look better in Black embossing, but hey, live and learn, right?  I adore that you can see through it so nothing of the artwork is hidden, just muted.
