More Double Cuttlebugging and You're a Hoot

This is such a fun technique!!! I have been trying different folders together.

I used sunny yellow on the first embossing here. I think it looks like the sunshine is shining through.

I inked the first embossing with buttercup ink. Sunshine spots anyone?
