Tilda & Co Challenge - Emboss This

Good evening, what terrible weather we've had today, it's rained all day. I hope it has been better where you are.
Well, I've just managed this challenge by the skin of my teeth again (what a strange saying that is, I must stop using it!) as there will be a fresh challenge tomorrow.
Tilda & Co's challenge this week was to use embossing on your project.
This week we are having fun with Embossing,
It Could be Heat Set Embossing, Dry Embossing, Embossing Boards, Embossing Folders The list can go on forever, So please show off your Embossing On your projects.

I've chosen this sweet little Tilda and mounted her onto some cuttlebugged cardstock that I've highlighted with a Sakura white glaze pen to make it look like polka dots, I've also used the pen to highlight the backing papers, and the little cuttlebugged border has been highlighted with chalks. I've finished off with a little piece of pretty braiding that I found in my stash and that matched the card. Tilda has been coloured with a mixture of pro-markers and pencils and the little cherries on her dress and boots have been glazed.
Now that I've seen the scan I realise that it is VERY purple, so I hope you like it and thanks for looking.

Being a bit of a nerd lol! I looked up the saying and it's actually biblical so keep on using it!
