Black Magic with Imaginsce and Core'dinations

So did the title catch your eye? What I am talking about is the fantastic cardstock called "Black Magic" by Core'dinations. I remember when this cardstock was released. It is such a cool concept. The top layer is black and if you sand it another color comes through. It makes a cool distressing technique.

This layout, I have already shown, but I just want to really focus on the closeups since it really shows what this innovative cardstock can do.

Here I lightly sanded the black paper and you can see the orange coming through.

And here, again, I sanded the front side of the Black Magic cardstock and then used it on an I-top brad and put some stickles on it for a little extra shine.

And here, I am showing you a little bit of a distressed edge (top right part of photo), I used an edge distresser and it makes a nice "distressed" looking edge on the photo matte. And did you notice the Irock pearl glam rocks?

Here is the final layout. I used the To Love and Cherish line by Imaginisce and on the top strips of the patterned paper I colored in a few flowers with my Copics.

I hope you have enjoyed this layout again. I just wanted to reshow the close ups so you could see what this fantastic cardstock is all about.

Thanks for stopping by!!
