I like "almost" solids....like the basic grey solids or the Bo Bunny double dot pps..a monochromatic tone on tone. I don't why I stopped buying solids to match the pps I buy. I used to. As far as solids I like to keep around..I'd say black and white and kraft. Of all the solids I do have,..I never seem to have the right color lol.
I do like Bazzill and DCWV for the textures and colors.
