Double bugging...

Yes again another technique from TJ and, again I'm using my embossing folder to create these cards.  I guess you could say that I like playing with these :-)) This one is Double Bugging from the TJ June/July 2009 newsletter.  It is simple and fun to do ... As long as you match  2 embossing folders or embossing plates that go well together, you can create very interesting backgrounds or even use it as the main feature of you card as I did in these 2 cards. I use my Adirondack inking pads and go over the texture left by the first embossing folder and when I'm done with the second embossing folder I use a painting brush and my Adirondack inking pads to apply color. I tried different ways to apply color but find that this way goes well for me.  When I want very subtle colors I use Chalks instead of inks. Add a complementary pattern paper or embossed cardstock, ribbons, brads ... ET VOILÀ!







Don't hesitate to leave your comments.  Those are always appreciated!

Oh Francine, these two cards are just beautiful! The extra steps to painting the second embossed piece really made a wonderful difference!
