Blog hopping with Core'dinations

The lawn fawn girls have been hopping with the Core'dinations team this week!

I just love their cardstock - perfect for embossing and sanding techniques that give a card an amazing amount of texture... check it:


I did a different coloring technique on the fox - doesn't he look fuzzy?  I stamped the outline in a very light memento ink.  As I colored him, the outline became less and less distinct.  It's so soft and artsy.  I want to try this on everything lawn fawn!

And then, there is the gorgeous woodgrain background to talk about...

I embossed a woodgrain pattern onto a piece of their brown cardstock and then used their sanding tool to bring out the pattern even more.  I love the kraft color that is revealed underneath, and the texture is so fun.

To add even more touchy-feely goodness, I roughed up the edges of the woodgrain piece and then sewed a wonky border all around.  

I hope you like it!  Check out the lawn fawn blog for even more inspiration.
