Sanded Core'dinations Texture Duet

Hi!  Donna here with my first Design Junkies post.  I'll be posting on the second and fourth Fridays of the month from now on.

The techniques I chose to use are Texture Duet (October 2010) and Sanded Core'dinations (April 2010).  I didn't even realize that these two techniques had just been showcased here when I chose them, but that's OK.  These techniques are so versatile, and I think it's fun to see the different looks that are possible using the same basic steps.

The Core'dinations paper I used on my card is called Black Magic, and I love the stuff so much it's hard not to hoard it.  Frankie is from the DoodleFactory Ghoulies collection from Starving Artistamps, as is the sentiment.  I colored both with Copic markers, and you can't see it in this picture, but Frankie's eyes and the letters are shiny because I went over them with a glaze pen. 

Next time your looking for an easy background with lots of textural interest, consider giving these techniques a try!
