Watercolor paper also cuts really well in my wizard using my spellbinder dies.
I recently took up watercolor painting and I like using them on stamped images too. I even like some stamp images on watercolor paper. I was surprised at how well they stamped and blended. I thought the watercolor paper would have too much tooth, but it didn't. My favorite though is a smooth cardstock, that way I can build up layers of waxy color to blend. It's cool because It behaves almost like paint, it becomes so fluid.

Isn't it fun how there are so many different approaches and they work well for different people
