Artcuts Heart

Hello to  anyone who is visiting.

I have a very quick make to show you today using an Artcuts wooden heart and  a stamping technique which I really like.
I have never tried it on the wood before but am pleased with the result.

I stamped directly onto the heart with a VersaMagic inkpad and a Hobby Art stamp,  then  heat embossed it with clear powder. It is probably wise to swipe an antistatic bag over the heart before stamping.
I wiped an inkpad all over the heart, then put a piece of paper over the heart and ironed it with a craft iron.

This will melt the embossing powder and lift it off onto the paper.
It leaves a batik effect on the surface of the wood, which I like.

The little butterfly has been coloured with the same inkpad and then glittered.
It is stuck onto the heart with PVA glue, as have the letters.

Hope you are having a glorious day like we are here.
Please visit again and thank you to everyone who takes the time to make a comment.
It's lovely to get feedback.

Bye for now.

Chocolate Baroque challenge

Hello everyone.
Hope you are having a gorgeous day, as we are here.

I've been inspired this week and have made three cards. Must be a record!!

I am entering this one into a Chocolate Baroque challenge as it involves using my favourite colours. The first challenge I have ever entered. so am quite excited.

I'm really in my comfort zone with this colour combination! Hope you like it.

The flowers on the base are softly coloured but unfortunately the photo hasn't shown it very well.
The main stamps are by Chocolate Baroque and the words are Hobby art.

Bye for now.
