A Day to Celebrate

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!
