Sanded stars

Here's another idea for distressing Core'dinations card - place a chipboard shape underneath the card and hold it firmly in place whilst rubbing the surface with sandpaper. This works really well with the colours from the Black Magic Collection. Here I've used a star from Making Memories but it reminds me of starfish.
Here's a closeup of the sandpapered star. The base card is the same coloured cardstock which I sponged with a slightly darker ink.
And the finished card with some embellishments. The sand dollar is a stamp from Stampington & Co which I pressed into Delight Air Dry Modelling Compound and the starfish is a mould I cast in Vanilla Sculpey.

  1. Hi Mylene

    Just discovered your blog via Scrappindipity ! Love this idea of using shapes - I have tried putting chipboard letters underneath the cardstock but havent thought of shapes ! I did masking on top of a layout project with a star but not sanding !

    tfs !

  2. Just checked out your blog Pearl - love what you did with the cuttlebug and sanding - looks great!
