Softly-blended colors and shimmery ink highlight the dimension and texture of the Serene Mandala 3D Embossing Folder.  There are so many ways to use this great folder.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a quick, inky technique to highlight the beautiful details of this folder.

Cut Memory Box Open Studio Watercolor Paper with the 3-¾" x 5" Rectangle Basics die.  Trim the corners with a corner rounder.  Blend overlapping layers of Distress Oxides on the smoother side of the paper.  
Colors used here are twisted citron, wilted violet, cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, and shaded lilac.  Give it a very light spritz of water and blend any splotchy areas with the inky sponges or brushes.  Place it in the Serene Mandala 3D Embossing Folder with the inked side facing the highly-textured half.  Emboss the watercolor paper using the plates or mats required for your machine.

Highlight the folder's details with a brayer and Pearlescent Jade Brilliance.  Ink the entire brayer, place the embossed cardstock on a hard, flat surface and roll it over the embossed watercolor paper.  

Stamp the greeting - from the Big and Little Words Clear Stamp Set - with Warm Breeze VersaFine Clair on lavender cardstock.  Stamp the frame over the stamped greeting.  Dry the inks.

Trim the watercolor paper, greeting block and card with a corner rounder. Round the corners of a light gray A-2 card too.  Lightly ink the edges of the watercolor paper with wilted violet.  Assemble the card and add ¼" punched circles of the turquoise glitter cardstock from the Twinkling Jewel 6x6 Glitter Pad.

Add inky dimension and shimmery highlights to embossed watercolor paper and make those details the star of your card.  Thanks for visiting...see you again on Saturday!
