Pastels and Texture
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  Today I wanted to show you what the 3-D embossing folders look like when you add a little color.  The 3-D folders have enough dimension to them that it is really easy to sponge a little chalk on top without getting chalk on the base of the cardstock.  Here is a closeup of the PanPastel I used on the embossed paper:


I like to use PanPastels because they are really easy to blend and apply evenly to the paper.  However, any chalk or pastel will work.  I like the soft look that you get from the chalks.

Here is a closeup of the finished card with sentiment:


Which look do you prefer....the plain embossed cardstock or chalked embossed cardstock?







Beautiful folder and card, great technique to add colour to just the embossed areas. Thanks for sharing this inspiration with these fun products.

Like the color!
