Metal Zen Bookmark

Here is a bookmark a made for a bookmark challenge.  It is made of metal.  I love embossing metal for craft projects, but have never purchased the tools to do so.  I simply use an old ball point pen.  Rubbing the metal with waxed paper helps my pen slide smoothly. 

After the piece was completely embossed and my fingers almost entirely useless, I heated it with my heat gun to make the colors emerge.  It has lovely shades of copper, red, orange, silver and blue.  Hard to see in the pics.
