"Who's the Boss" An embossing technique challenge 57

The technique used is called Layered Dry Embossing using embossing folders and the Big Shot.  I ran a 5.5 by 4.5 piece of whisper white cardstock through one embossing folder...then applied Ballet Blue ink to the raised impressions.  Once that was dry, I flattened the embossed or raised area by rubbing the bone folder over all the embossed areas until the paper was as smooth as possible (this was done very carefully so as not to tear the paper) . Next I chose another embossing folder and ran the same piece through the Big Shot.  This time I coloured the raised area with Chocolate brown ink, followed by a metallic gold medium.
Stamp:  Vintage Vogue
Paper:  Chocolate brown, whisper white, summer yellow
Other:  yellow rhinestone brads, playground button, brown satin ribbon, small and large glue dots, stampin' dimensionals
You can't see it very well, but the yellow matting was crimped and then rubbed with a metallic gold medium
