This week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we have a nice easy challenge for you - Flowers and Lace. I had some beautiful chocolate lace from Websters Pages arrive in the mail this week which I had to use. I also inked up my recently acquired Right Through your Heart Tilda - isn't she lovely?
The cardstock that I used to colour her on is something very new to me. I normally use Xpress it Blending card, but this is Cryogen Irridescent White - and WOW - what a fantastic alternative to the Xpress It. Like the Xpress It, the Cryogen is a dream to blend on although this is my first time using it, but what is unique is the shimmery finish to the paper. I tried to get a good photo of this to show you but this is the best I could come up with:
Pretty cool hey? I love it. But guess what? It is not available here in Australia! Of course. Sigh. So if you want any, expect to pay hefty postage to get some out here. I have a small stash of this awesome cardstock which I will be saving for special occassions :o) (Thanks so much Claudia). I still LOVE the Xpress It Blending card of course, I just think that the Cryogen is also a really nice paper alternative.
