Two tone embossing

I was browsing the web this morning and came across a very talented lady here. Donna created a gorgeous card using different coloured embossing powders and I loved the way it looked so I decided to give it a go.

This first card uses my favourite old olive and I embossed with gold on the large snowflakes and silver on the smaller ones.

The second card is not quite navy and I used the gold and silver again.

This is a close up of the large snowflake and it really glistens in the light!

The last card is real red with Dasher. I embossed Dasher with silver and then used the dazzling diamonds glitter with the heat and stick powder for his antlers.

It really does sparkle in the light.

I am now covered in glitter but I had forgotten just how much fun embossing is, it's almost magical when it changes from the dull colour to something shiny!

Let me know what you think.
