Problem Solved!

I have recently been having trouble with gloss embossing.
Turns out that using glue instead of ink does not give a gloss effect, but it does give a wonderful water one!

To create the card topper I stamped the image onto a sheet of tracing paper and coloured onto the reverse with watercolour pencils. I then glued onto the areas I wanted to look like water and clear gloss embossed it. Being very careful not to melt or bubble the paper!
Press inside a book or clear embossing plates to flatten out. Repeat once or twice more.
And voilĂ !
