Watercolor paper or Whisper White cardstock – which is better for watercoloring?  

Naturally we think watercolor paper since it has the word 'watercolor' in it.  However, lots of times, even I, watercolor on Whisper White cardstock.  

What are the pros and cons?  What size images should I watercolor using a Blender Pen vs. an Aqua Painter?  

These are all great questions and I address them all in today's quick tip video.

    Lisa, Thank you for the lesson on colored pencils and water color paper. I have been using some in some cards that I learned through various tutorials. I enjoy watching yours and others to learn more technique.
    Thanks again. Susan

    Thanks for this tips video about watercoloring….very helpful! I also love using watercolor paper when coloring with markers because the harsh lines that sometimes appear do not show up on watercolor paper! Oh, one more thing…. when paper gets wet, it will “pill”, not “pile”….just thought you would like to know! 😉
