Resists Embossing Using Gelatos:

Emboss pattern using white embossing powder. You could use clear too for a different effect.

Colour image with Gelatos leaving some space between colours, rub into paper with your fingers and then wipe your coloured image with baby wipes in one direction.  I made two panels, the first with blue, yellow, orange and grey and then the second without the grey.
