Vine Street Embossing Folder

The Vine Street Embossing Folder is a great Freebie Sale-A-Bration product! I have to admit, I didn't like it much in the catalog. It only took seeing a few samples for me to change my mind. I used the new Ombre Technique with it, and I'm very happy with the outcome!

The Ombre Technique is very easy. I very lightly (because I was working with an embossed surface) sponged on three colors, overlapping them slightly to blend them. With St. Patrick's Day still on my brain, I selected greens for this technique; Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, and Gumball Green. They all work perfectly together! Make sure you work from light to dark. I tried this with both Whisper White and Very Vanilla card stocks, and I liked the look of the Vanilla better.

The Lucky Day single stamp paired perfectly with this look! I used Certainly Celery and Gumball Green ink for the image, and finished the image off with a green Sharpie colored Rhinestone Basic Jewel.
