I use three different types of cardstock to achieve different looks with Distress Oxides. I use Recollections 110 lb. from Michaels if all I am going to do is blending. I don't like c/s that curls so I don't use Michaels when doing a lot of misting. Bristol is amazing for both blending and misting techniques as is 90 lb. watercolor paper. I love putting DO on a non stick craft sheet, misting and smooshing my watercolor paper through it. Such a fun background technique. Just a note though, you achieve a totally different look with watercolor paper. It is more muted and shabby chic but still amazing.
I love Distress Oxides and am teaching beginner classes at Class Act in Oshawa, Ont. Canada.
