Hello to my readers, connie here to share another charming design  created with the Julie Nutting Doll Stamps. To purchase these stamps go Scrapbookingfanatics online store.
The adorable little girl, can be adapted to creating cards, tags, scrapbook pages and altered books. This little cutie stands 7 1/2 inches tall.

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.
