Just Add Ink - Challenge #26

Two posts in one day, woohoo!!! I managed to have a play with the Just Add Ink challenge for this week (embossing) and, even though I haven't heat embossed for some time, I thought I would give it a try. You can find the link for the Just Add Ink challenge here.

In the end I decided on two types of embossing, heat and dry. I met my gorgeous friend, Karen, today and I bought the Ocean Commotion set from her so I just had to have a play with it as soon as I came home!!!

So here is my entry:-

It's a bit hard to see in the pic, but I have embossed the swirls with versa mark using Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Basic Gray. I have also embossed the fish, one with Not Quite Navy and the other one with a silver embossing powder. I then popped the whole layer into the polka dot embossing folder. The gorgeous ribbon (non-Stampin' Up!) was purchased from my local Spotlight.

I was very happy with this card in the end. After not having embossed for so long it was very refreshing for a change. Might bring it out more often!!!

Now I'm off to enter my card.
