I made this one for Ways to Use It Challenge 121, which calls for using a stylus to dry emboss. I stamped white-core cardstock by CTMH on the backside with the two of the flowers from Friendship Flowers in VersaMark. I rubbed the VersaMarked images (VM side up) with my stylus, using a mousepad for a slightly cushioned surface. Then I turned the cardstock over and rubbed the raised images with a sandpaper block to create the 'white' flowered background. For the verse panel, I wanted to continue with the shabby chic look, so I created small borders around the WW and the dp with the same CTMH cardstock, and then pierced those cardstock panels, backside up so that the rough side of the piercing would be on the 'good side.' I then roughed the good side up with the sandpaper block. I really like the effect it created. Wouldn't it be awesome if SU would make some white core CS in addition to its standard CS?
Thanks for looking!
