Copic Creations 48 - Favourite Paper for Copic colouring!!

This week at Copic Creations we are trying out Cryogen paper!!
It seems whenever you come across the subject of Copics on message boards, craft sites, etc. there are always numerous discussions on “what’s the best paper to use when coloring with Copics“.   Well, we’d like to hear from you on this!  
Our Design Team was recently introduced to the newest paper in the Copic blending family ~Cryogen White cardstock from our awesome sponsor this week … the Paper Temptress.

Sooooooooooo, how would YOU like to try some of these awesome papers from the Paper Temptress (including Cryogen White)?!     Our prize this week for one lucky participant is . . .

 A $25.00 Gift Certificate to the Paper Temptress store!!

On the challenge blog you’ll find a poll with the most popular papers available for Copics … please take a minute to let us know which is YOUR favorite.

I found the Cryogen white an absolute dream for both colouring and blending - it has a beautiful slightly irridescent sheen to it and really maintains the rich colours of the Copics. I shall cerainly using this again and I hope I can acquire a stock without exorbitant postage costs. I also used the 'Hot Fudge Pop tones 100#'  and the Starburst Lichen - both supplied by Patricia (of Paper Temptress) which I stamped with a damask stamp and coated with perfect pearl (I mixed the blue and green together to achieve the turquoisey colour) It stamped beautifully and has the most glorious sheen - I have included a photograph which I hoped would show the pearly sheen but it doesn't!!
For the cross panel I used a Laura Ashley stamp and stamped randomly over the cs. I used Archival ink in Coffee, inked it up once then stamped 2/3 times to achieve the dark and light  impressions. The ovals are cut with my nesties and the upper one embossed with the textile folder, the swirls and base flowers cut with Marianne Creatables and the flowers and ribbon are from my stash.

Below is the  inside of the card

Below is the photograph of the paper which I hope showed the beautiful pearly sheen of the damask stamping but sadly doesn't. 
Perhaps it time I took some photography lessons!!

Beautiful, love the colors you chose. I agree so much about catching the beautiful sheen on a photo, if every one could see the beautiful cardstock that PaperTemptress's carries I wouldn't be able to keep it in stock.

I can see the shimmer - especially when I enlarge it. Looks quite amazing. Love the colours too & those brown flowers are super; I really like the way you've mixed the brown & black too - so effective with the turquoise.
