More Fun with Texture

For my card today, I wanted to use my new Blacked Eyed Susans embossing plate from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I decided to also use my Core'dinations Black Magic color core paper. This is such fun paper, black on the outside and a wide range of colors on the inside.  I chose a rich butter color that I associate with black-eyed susans.  So with the black side up, I embossed the card stock then took my Core'dinations Sand It Gadget and sanded the paper so the yellow core appeared.  Too cool! 


Because the embossing plate is so large, 5 7/8 x 7 1/2 inches, I was able to create a background for a 6" square card.  Using my Potted Flowers Die, I created these great flowers, dry embossing the back to give them some roundness.  I added some texture to the centers with my Large Circle Stitcher plate, again sanding the top to let the yellow show through.  I die cut the leaves using Large Dimensional Leaves 2, adding a bit of Black Soot Distress ink to the edges.  Using my Oval Silver Stackers and a piece of green core Black Magic paper, I die cut the oval panel, adding texture with my Large Oval Stitcher plate and again sanding the paper to let the green show through.  I backed this with a green panel cut with my coordinating Large Scallop Oval Stackers die.  To create the corner pieces, I die cut a circle using my Little Stackers Circle die, adding texture with my stitcher plate and sanding so the yellow shows through.  I then cut it into quarters and used one for each of the corners.  The last step was to find an image that would work with all of this, lol, backwards I know but I was having fun with all the textures.  I decided on this very vintage digi image from Sugar Nellie called Grace Standing.  Isn't she adorable?  I sized and printed her onto Cryogen paper and colored her with Copics:
Grace - E000, E00
Eyes- B12
Hair - E11
Coat - G40, YR21
Dress, Stockings and Bow - YR20, YR21
Socks - G40
Shoes - W1
The last step was to add some Gold pearl accents with my Viva Decor Pearl pen.  Finished size is 6" square.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will try some texture in your life.
