Coloring Embossed Patterns
by Michelle Bala


Happy Friday!!! Michelle here. I really love the newest embossing folder, Gracious Leaves 3D. It is so pretty when brought to life with color. You can color the leaves and berries to coordinate with every season.

Memory Box (1)

This is what the panel looks like before I colored the background and added embellishments. I used Copic Markers in just afew shades. For the berries I used RV00, RV52 and W2. For the leaves I used YG21, G20, G21, G24, and W2. For the background I used BG10 and BG11.


After the coloring was complete, I added a few paint splatters with white and gold paint. Than I added some shimmer with Fairy Sugar in shades Berry Mist for the berries and Mint Frost for the leaves.


I embossed the sentiment and butterfly from the stamp set Peony Garden Corner Clear Stamp, onto vellum paper.  For a finishing touch I added two gem stones.
I hope you give this a try!!!
