Have you tried Core'dinations yet?

So I am working on a LO this morning and dedided to mount it on the piece of the Cosmo Core'dinations paper. If you aren't sure what these are about I want to show you!

Every piece in the pad is embossed with various patterns and in different colors. Just sanding them gives a very cool "weathered" effect.

You can also run an inkpad over them, and the raised portion will show the relief inked up, while the lower parts keep their original color. *I would recommend sanding beofre you ink, as then the ink will come out a more true color. if you ink on the colored relief it will turn the color a bit.

If you aren't sure what to sand with...grab a MM sanding block, they work perfectly!

Ok, just wanted to give you a quick share about those papers and what they are all about. I am going to try and get some loose sheets to include in some upcoming kits so you can all give them a try, and if you are interested I have a few Jenni Bowlin sets and a few Cosmo sets in the store now!
Be back later with my finished LO and I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday!
