Playing in Paradise #39 and Textured to Perfection
SANDPAPER = A masculine card with texture!
I just visited the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog and realized that this card is also perfect for their current 'masculine card' challenge. I originally made the card for the Textured to Perfection challenge at the Moxie Fab World.
The first mat is black sandpaper. The second 'mottled' layer was achieved by spreading glue on a piece of cardstock, crumpling up some tissue paper and gluing it onto the cardstock. I then sponged ink on to the tissue, using a metallic pigment ink last to give it a bit of a sheen. The various circles were cut from sandpaper (different colors and textures) with my nesties and circle punches.
