Caught a Bug??


Hi there and Happy Friday!!  Today's card is pretty simple and straightforward.  I played along with a challenge at Splitcoast which was to try something new....something you have never done before.  I thought I would try and emboss only parts of my background, leaving areas open for my image and sentiment.  I did that by placing my paper in the embossing folder, rolled it into my Cuttlebug a bit then moved it and rolled it again etc. etc.  The jar is coloured with Copic markers and then I applies Glossy Accents to the areas that would be glass.  It is then cut out and pop dotted for interest.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.  

Supplies:  stamps; The Alley Way/ eb folder/ Cuttlebug/ twine/ pop dots/ Copics

  2. You almost come up wit the most wonderful ideas/techniques.... another one for the Karen's binder I am keeping! So cool. I had done embossing of the bottom, or side or other, but never this way. Will give it a try for sure.
