If you’d like a more muted embossed result, stamp and emboss first. Then sponge on your colors, mist as before, and wipe off the residue with a paper towel. The original sharp white of the embossing will be more subtle which looks very nice and may be what you’re after. It’s your call . . . try both methods and see which one suits your project.
*A quick way to see if your background is truly dry before over-stamping and embossing on it is to scatter a little embossing powder over it. If it sticks, guess what? Your background isn’t dry enough. Brush off the powder, heat to dry with your heat gun, and try again. If it’s truly dry, the powder will not stick where you don’t want it.
