wild for wausau
i got a couple of boxes of cardstock from wausau paper in the mail the other day, and worked on a few projects for them this past weekend. the boxes of cardstock had been sitting in my scraproom for about a week while i was waiting for mr. mojo to show his shining face. i needed some mostly cardstock ideas. there was all of this really cool metallic/pearlecent type cardstock, but in pretty bright colors... then it dawned on me... why not try running that baby through the printer. (i wasn't really sure if it would dry well, but it dried instantly!) it gave the coolest effect. all of the printing looked metallic, too! it is the coolest look! i wish it showed up better in these pictures! i used several of the glitz digital overlays and simply changed the color to give it a tone on tone effect. you can stamp on it for a really cool effect, too. (i used stampin up classic ink.) you can even print photos on the metallic white. i am seriously in love with this cardstock now! wausau will be launching a new website this spring, so i'll link to that when i hear it's up and running.
the idea for this card came from a card by alexis hardey over in the label tulip gallery.
this is a version of a card i made a couple of weeks ago, only with the metallic silver cardstock. almost everything is cooler when it's shiny! :D
