Artsy Play with the Cuttlebug
I just bought 2 of the new landscape embossing folders (the Leaves and the Grass with single bird) and have spent some time playing with them. Here is some of my work.
For these 3 cards I used the technique of inking the inside top of the embossing folder and running it through the CB. The outside of the top of each CB folder has a little printed indentification which helps to quickly distinquish the top from bottom.
The leaves and branches are the color of the paper I selected. The ink added to the folder is the flat background. The thread like lines are created by allowing the ink pad edges to leave heavier ink lines on the folder.
Here I added some background lines with cut n dry sponge.
Also colored a little color to the leaves a little.
Not too much space for stamping...but I okay with that since I got to have some creative play time.
