Embossed and Painted Background Card

I'd been wanting to try brayering acrylic paint onto a dry embossing folder and using that for the background of a card. I finally gave it a try a few weeks ago, but it didn't turn out quite as crisp and neat an impression with the paint (the paint got into crevices that it shouldn't have) as I'd envisioned in my head. Maybe I need more practice, because I feel like I have seen other people do it, but it could also be the medium (i.e., I should try using something other than acrylic paint). I instead just ended up dry embossing first, then using the brayer to apply acrylic paint to the raised surfaces of the paper. I used the embossed and painted background on this card:
