I use Versafine or Ranger Archival inks for watercoloring. I like Strathmore Bristol cardstock, 100 lb for the paper and I find it at Hobby Lobby when it's 40% off. I like this paper because it's a "whiter" white than a lot of them.

I have taken a few classes from Kristina Werner and highly recommend her. She is easy to watch and does easy techniques with watercolors. Her online classes are great and you can go back and watch them anytime after joining.

I did these and learned so much and I have been stamping for 20+ years.

Watercolour is my first love. As you can see you can watercolour on almost anything. For regular watercolour I use 140lb watercolour paper. Just have fun with what you are trying and don't use too much water...it can always be added to but it is hard to take it off.

Hot press paper is best suited for stamping because it has a smooth finish (think of an iron as a hot press, smoothing wrinkles). Quality and results will vary depending on the brand of paper as well as the cotton content.

I use Fabriano Studio hot press paper for my cardmaking, in the 140# weight. I buy the biggest pad of 11x14 paper which is 75 sheets - I can make 300 card fronts from that amount.

(lots of choices here - be sure to check hot/cold press, size, and weight!)

Inks: for watercoloring I use Versafine Clair, Stazon or a hybrid ink - anything that doesn't react with water will be fine.

(Coming back to say - don't start off with cheap paper just because you are a beginner - you will only be frustrated with the results.)
