A blog-inspired idea for emphasizing texture . . .
I first die cut the panel and sponged it with the three different colors. After heat drying, I used an embossing folder to add an all-over raised design. Then I sponged on more of the same three colors. This darkened the raised design and I got a lovely pattern that gave texture without overwhelming the final layout. Pretty easy!
