This bundle designed by Tim Holtz for Sizzix contains distress watercolor cardstock and a Shaping Tool Kit. This Distress watercolor cardstock measures 8.5" x 11" and includes 10 sheets. This cardstock is designed to be used with water based crafting mediums (sold separately). There are 2 different sides to the cardstock, one a smooth finish for detailed work and the other a textured finish for adding more layers of color and this cardstock weighs 118 lb. The cardstock resists buckling and dries quickly. The Styling Tool Kit contains 1 molding pad, one 2 mm/5 mm Stylus Tool, one 8 mm/10 mm Stylus Tool, and one Reverse-Action Tweezers.
I like using this for cards. I don't think it is as good as regular watercolor paper, but it can take a fair amount of water, and it is white. A lot of watercolor paper is ivory. It has a nice texture and is sturdy.
This cardstock was recommended as being great quality for using markers and watercolors, It works great. I have orders it multiple times and am using it to stamp, then cut out using dies and the Cuttlebug. The weight is good and is exactly what I wanted.
Easy to blend or mix watercolor paints. Not as toothy as others but good for coloring and cutting die cuts
Having the choice of using the smooth or textured side is a huge plus!
Beautiful watercolor results, thick and substantial too. Buying more.
What I expected, special purpose paper
This item was cancelled from my order after my order was confirmed. I'm hoping to reorder soon, anxious to try it out.
