Embossing for Make My Monday

Over at Make My Monday Laura is our first Hostess of the year and she has chosen EMBOSSING for our challenge this week. I've used loads on my card - dry embossing with a folder through the Big Shot and some gold and clear embossing using my heat gun. I also went outside of my comfort zone a little for this one and I'm still not sure whether I like it or not - the idea worked anyway - take a look

I managed to make the ink look wet by using some clear embossing powder I used a Versamark pen and repeated the process about 3 times to achieve the look I was aiming for
