I stamped Elvis with Archival Black onto both Distress watercolor card stock and Neenah Solar White card stock. I wanted to color the blue background with Distress ink and a water brush, and I wasn't sure which one would work out best. I didn't use water in my water in my water brush -- just smooshed some ink onto my craft mat and spritzed it lightly, then picked it up with a dry water brush.
My experiment turned out to be a wash. (hah, so punny) The image stamped better on the Neenah, but the watercolor paper warped less. I put a ton of adhesive on the back before mounting to a black layer, so in the end I think the Neenah looks best.
