Bugaboo Tutorial Wednesday!

Hello, I'm excited, get to share with you a tutorial for Catch The Bug's Tutorial Wednesday! This is a really simple tutorial to make a Faux Moon that will work great with the new Martian digis just released at Bugaboo Stamps.

One of my favorite crafting tools is embossing folders, and I love them even more when they can be used to create somethingother than just paper with texture!
To make a Faux Moon, you will need the Spots & Dots embossing folder, circle nestie or punch whatever you use to create circles. I tried a few different papers, the spotted piece above is from DCWV's Nana's Nursery - Girl.
In this photo you can see the results of 3 different papers I used, the middle one is Bazzill petty cash, it is sort of shiny and has a texture, the bottom one is certainly celery.

I cut my circle first, using only about 3/4's of the circle for this card. You are actually using the reverse side of the embossing folder so it looks like craters, so if your paper has a good side, make sure to put the good side facing the side without the logo.

Then just sponge the edges and you have a moon!

Another great embossing folder that does double duty is the Tiny Bubbles EF, it makes a great golf ball when using the back side up!

For my card above, I used the new Martian-ship. The card base is black, with a layer of daffodil delight and then a layer of dp from DCWV rock queen, and of course the moon!

I coloured the image with copics and added some stickles.

Have a Great Day!
