Laser Lustre

You might think that I'm talking about PaperTemptress' Laser Lustre Cardstock that I used in the last card that I did, but really, this is a personal thing - could I run my Vintage Silver Lustre paper through my laser printer? I had no doubt that it would work fine with an inkjet printer, because it takes ink so well, but toner is another matter.

You can see that this digital stamp (from Digital Two for Tuesday - free, of course)printed perfectly, and I colored it with no problems. I sometimes have a problem with coloring digital images because the toner will lift off the paper when it gets wet (because I'm using water-based markers, not copics), but the Lustre paper is much nicer for coloring than GP110. The paper is from My Mind's Eye, and all the ribbon is from Michael's.

This card is for the current Cardvaark's challenge to make a tall card. I do love a challenge.
