I purchased this paper to make vintage-style greeting cards and I was very pleased with the results. I used rubber stamps and ink and then water-colored the images and the paper held strong and gave a nice result. I love the balance between a vellum translucency and a parchment opaqueness--best of both worlds for my projects. My only down point on this product is that it only comes in ivory. I would love this product if it came in a natural white shade--better for colors to look true. I was also very pleased with the service and shipping time-both excellent on that score.
