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.
