You can see in this example that the embossing worked more clearly. That is because I totally covered the paper with the drybrush second color. I started with green and did the blue on top. I used a variety of stamps to see how they would work. Again, this was on an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock. Hope this encourages you to try this technique. Since acrylics dry so quickly, you can finish one piece pretty fast.
