Here is my first contribution, it uses embossing in 2 ways. The first is dry embossing with sanding. I scored (dry embossed) my paper every 1/4 inch then i sanded over the raised areas to make them stand out. The next technique is called ghosting (I think) i found it in the CTMH "Wishes" Card confidence program. I first heat embossed the mountain scene using Clear Embossing powder then I inked over the embossed area with desert sand, so the embossed area would stand out. Next I took a piece of paper and placed over the image and ran over it with a hot iron until all my embossing area was on transfered onto the paper. My final piece has no raised embossed area as I "ghosted' it away.
