I had the idea to brayer my EF first with the different colors and then emboss the panel to transfer the color. I misted the paper lightly just to make sure the ink transferred. To get the darkest shade at the top I used the ink pad direct to the EF and then embossed it again.

Clever! The ombre embossing turned out beautifully. I might try that! Into my favs. I like all the decorating you added to the embossed panel. It's bright and happy. Thanks for sharing and caring by participating in HYCCT with your sweet card.

How cool! I thought about using and embossing folder, but wasn't sure I had the patience for that in case it didn't work well. So I went with a background stamp instead and did an emboss resist. I do love this look of the ombre wit the white patterned contrast.

Pat, ingenious! Love how you did your ombre....and TFS. With the big white polka dots, your card has such visual impact. Pretty warm shades of yellow/ochre/orange. The bouquet of die cut flowers makes a lovely focal point. A beautiful and striking card.
