Two Techniques - One Card

For my March Technique Junkies Just One swap I used two different techniques, Double Bugging and Distressed Colorblocking. Double bugging involves using two different embossing folders. Here I used two different Cuttlebug folders to create the background. For my image I made the background behind the sandcastle using two Tim Holtz complementary colored distressed ink pads. To accomplish this look you take the darker of the two and swipe the pad across your cardstock so that it does not completely fill the space. Then using the lighter color go over the same area filling in the white spaces with the lighter ink. Stamp then mat and voila!
