Fab Friday 207 Entry - Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder & Best Year Stamp Set

 Hello,  todays card is inspired by the simplicity of the Fab Fri 207 sketch.  

Click on the image to go to the Fab Friday 207 site

I started with Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper and embossed it with the fabulous Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  I tried to enhance the colour around the folds of texture, similar to what I thought a painters palette might look like as colour is blended.  Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and Balmy Blue are blended with Water Painters.  I spritzed the watercolour paper first with the Stampin' Spritzers to relax the paper fibers and enhance the 3D effect. 

The sentiment is from Best Year stamp set.  I carefully stamped Granny Apple Green on the bottom and Coastal Cabana on the top of the Thank you, then stamped off, hoping to mimic the watercoloured look on the embossed layer.  Then I cut the image in half and raised the 'Thank You' on dimensionals.  The bottom script font,  'for all that you are'  is  Granny Apple Green and adhered to Reversible Ribbon, (pretty Peacock side) and then glued onto the embossed layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Bermuda Bay card base is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, with a 4 5/8 x 3 3/8 layer of Coastal Cabana, topped with the Fluid 100 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 layer. 

Enjoy, and have a super day!
