Question can I use Natural white for a background

I accidentally ordered Natural white card stock and I was wondering if it would look ok to use it to stamp on it.

Thank you,
Lisa

I have used it when I used leaf stamps, ferns, and some flowers.

You can use whatever you like. If you don't like the way it looks, you can always stamp background papers with it or use it for layering and card bases.

It's ok to stamp on but it's not as smooth (it's got a little texture) so your image won't be as clear and crisp as it would be on whisper white or very vanilla. It's a good weight for a card base, though. It's not really a pure white but it looks good with vintage-y colors like chocolate chip and almost artichoke.

I use it for masculine theme cards often as it seems to look better with earth tones and darker neutrals than a bright white base. I also like the weight and feel of it. Play with it a bit and you will fall in love!
