SplodgeAway High Res Elegance Card Review.....and Giveaway!!!

Hi all,
Well today sees my first project over on the SplodgeAway Blog. The remit was to give my opinion of their new High Resolution Elegance Card stock, which is ideal for stamping and colouring ........as I discovered!
Here is a card I made for this.

This card was made to using the wonderful Bamboo mask as the background, coloured in various Distress inks and using the SplodgeAway mat which is now an essential for blending inks!!!

I die cut a scalloped circle from the High Res Elegance card and stamped the beautiful B line stamp onto it using black versafine ink. This card is super smooth and the image was really crisp and clear. I then embossed it with clear embossing powder as I wanted to try out my Promarkers on the new card.
Brilliant....the card allowed the colours to blend beautifully, there was no bleeding and the colours really stayed true. Added the flowers and sentiment.

I am out of my comfort zone in colouring really, but this card did make it easier .For stamping and colouring this is what I will opt for in the future too!! Do pop over to the blog to see my whole review and that of the others in the Design Team and the wonderful projects they have created to review this card.

This is the mask I used.... Bamboo, I love this one.
