Paper Pal Arts Challenge


Are you ready for a perfect fall? This color challenge got me in the mood!  My card is a beautiful combination of More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso.  I have been using these colors on several projects lately. 
I recently began using a brayer to add ink to my texture folders.  It is just another way to add a twist to your cards.  You can place the paper in the inked folder and run it through the Big Shot for color and texture. My card today uses this technique.
Or just add color by placing the paper in the inked folder and press down with your hand to transfer the color to the paper. This method will leave color to match the design of the folder.  Remember the design on each side of the folder is different so you can get two different looks. I like find new ways to use my card making products.
