Here's a closeup of the sandpapered star. The base card is the same coloured cardstock which I sponged with a slightly darker ink.And the finished card with some embellishments. The sand dollar is a stamp from Stampington & Co which I pressed into Delight Air Dry Modelling Compound and the starfish is a mould I cast in Vanilla Sculpey.

Here's another idea for distressing Core'dinations card - place a chipboard shape underneath the card and hold it firmly in place whilst rubbing the surface with sandpaper. This works really well with the colours from the Black Magic Collection. Here I've used a star from Making Memories but it reminds me of starfish.
