Ombre embossing....What's that?

Well, I didn't know what "Ombre embossing" was until todays lesson at Summer Card Camp 2.

Perhaps the best way is to show you. Take a look at the sentiment on my card. Here I have mixed 3 different colours of embossing powder. The look would be better if it were 3 shades of the same colour. BUT I didn't have that so I just tried it by mixing black, gold and silver. Thats Ombre!

It actually looks kind of cool. The card gets a more masculine look with this.

For stamping of the dots, rings and cat eye I have used lids from different things I had on my craft desk. This was a trick shown by Jennifer McGuire the other day in class. Use whatever you have to make stamping with. Almost anything can be used.

With this card I am participating in CASology's Challenge with the Cue Card
in CAS-ual Fridays Challenge with the theme
"Polka Dots"
