Last night I sat happily colouring in digi stamps and when I came to look at papers to use, nothing I had matched in any way. So my big tip for me today is look first at your papers and then do your colouring, I am sure all you excellent cardmakers have found this out already and are shaking your heads at me.
Well I decided in the end to use the spare image I had done the day before of the Lili of the Valley cupcake stamp, the same as my last card. This time I decided to add a cupcake recipe which I aged so that it looked like it had been used many times; I used my Tim Holtz blending tool which is really excellent for this. I found that the boxes of cards that you buy often have a thick sheet of card in them and the reverse side is white so you can place your picture on this and distress it without using good paper or having to clean off your craft mat. I have been using the same piece of card for about two months now.
