Double the Fun with Embossing


Hello! Taking time to post this card for several challenges.  One of my favorite techniques is dry embossing.  I have several embossing folders and I like to use them in different ways such as using to create backgrounds and highlighting the raised areas with color.  On this card I doubled up the embossed design by using 2 folders and highlighting each folder design in a different color. I like the effect I got by using blue ink on one design and then purple on the second. I like the depth this gives.
