Arigato & New Recollections 110lb CS Review


Happy Friday everyone! Last minute I wanted to share the card I made today. Also I decided to put a video up of the card/coloring process (**CLICK HERE**). Before I forget, I am trying out a new cardstock. It is Recollections 110lb White Cardstock bought at Michaels Craft Store. I wanted a thicker card base for white cs and for my one layer cards, so I wanted to give this a try. 

Here are my thoughts: It works beautifully with my Copics. Unfortunately it still bleeds through the underside of the image. My go-to Copic paper is the Neenah Solar White Smooth Cardstock, BUT for the price w/40% coupon and a whole ream, I would totally reccommend this Recollections brand. There is a slight texture to the cardstock but not that noticeable. 

The image is the cutest from Sister Stamps - Minako. Even though I am no longer a Guest Designer, I still love creating with their stamps!

Have a wonderful weekend!
