Unity FWF Blog Hop {April 8th}

**This is my second post for the day. Scroll down to enter Shabby Chic giveaway**

I am just in time for Debbie's embossing and sanding challenge at Yvonne's blog. I wanted to play ever since the challenge went up but it took me time to interpret the challenge in a different way as I do not own any Core'dinations cardstock. 

It's been a long time since I participated in Unity Friends with Flair hop, so I jumped in there too. To start the hop from the beginning and a full list of participants, visit the Unity Blog.

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Ippity (Totally HAPPY); ink: Unity Stamp Co. (Viridian Leaf, French Lilac), Colorbox Pigment Ink(Blue); PP: Echo Park (For the Record), Twine from stash

I am using the sketch at Ippity April Twist Challenge and colors at Play Date Cafe#76. I picked up the most beautiful "Newsprint" echo park paper from the For the Record collection (a must have :) ) I first embossed the image in white and then inked the background using sponge. I, then, did a bit of sanding on the pattern paper in the middle and along the edges for more definition and vintage look.

Here is a close up of sanding
