One side of the pp is Black the other is a color so when you tear the pp you have a colored edge. If you crinkle the pp you get distressing with a colored edge. Also this happens when sanding the pp. After sanding the pp clean the pp with a baby wipe to lift all the black dust left behind to show the colored pp. Great pp for mixed media and painting. Nice heavy weight also.

I am so excited about these papers! They are so much fun, and they are perfect for Halloween, or everyday use for that matter. They remind me of the art we would do in school around Halloween time where you color a picture and then wash over it with black watercolor. So much fun! It goes great with the Cosmo Cricket Blackboard line too! Sand the edges, tear it, sand it all over, it is so versatile! You really have to try it for yourself!!!

I just love the fabulous colors in these Color Core cardstocks packs. While the front of the package shows more than 20 colors, you get one sheet of 20 different colors per pack. I picked up the Hocus Pocus pack. I love the vibrancy of the colors when they are torn. I like the crumpled antique look as well. I'm not a big fan of how the paper handles the sanding technique as it muddles the colors too much. I'll have to play with that some more. I will probably pick up the Black Magic pack next as I want that vibrant red called Hypnotic.

Like many people do, I did not read the complete description of this product only to find when it arrived, that it was textured cardstock. I really was only wanting plain cardstock. Now, don't get me wrong, it is very nice quality and I do really like the colors, but I was trying to get away from textured as I have plenty of it already. I'll keep it, but learned my lesson.
I like the Core'dinations line and this Black Magic in particular. The black really shows off the "core" color nicely. It's a nice weight, not too heavy, not too thin. It's great for a distressed look, whether crumpled, sanded, or torn. I like to use it with dry embossing. The embossing alone isn't enough to bring out the core color, but going over the high points with a sanding block will do the trick. Comes in a wonderful variety of core colors, too!
I really like the concept of the core'dinations papers -- that you can sand or rip the paper and see a different color core. I just got an embossing machine and I cannot wait to use it with my core'dinations papers -- I absolutely love the look of sanded embossed images using core'dinations paper.
I am reviewing this product because I am using it right now with a Cuttlebug folder (Allegro) and love how it looks. I used an emery file to expose more of the core, but you could just leave it how it is also, depends on how much of the core color you want exposed..
