I incorporated a few techniqes which employ embossing.
Embossing Instructions:
The background layer the girl is on, consists of Gesso applied to cardstock which was dried and heat set.
The second step is the painting of mediums:
I dabbed using an applicator onto the gesso piece with Ranger Alcohol inks and Rubbing Alcohol,
In the final step of painting, I included some light applications of Tim Holtz Distress Stains. Heat set and dry
For the Dry Embossing application, I ran this piece through my Sizzix Big Shot Machine to create an impression using Sizzix Tim Holtz Texture Fades " Collage and Notebook folder ".
For the last step incorporating 'wet embossing',  I applied  Green Pigment Ink brayering lightly overtop of the dry embossed piece and embossed the wet portion with clear embossing powder. Dried and set with a heat gun.
