LIM - Metallic Heart # 2

Hi everyone!  Excuse me for going all hearty.  But I just couldn't resist doing another heart shaped card for the Less Is More -  Metallic challenge, and Let's Create and Craft challenge - Blast from the Past, for which I chose 'Heart Felt'

I cut a heart shape card base and dry embossed it.  I then cut another two smaller hearts.  The silver heart was covered in dry adhesive and then I added metallic silver gilding flakes.  The gold heart was coated with VersaMark clear ink, then triple embossed with antique gold embossing powder.  On the final embossing, and while still molten, I stamped an ornate design with silver pigment ink into it.  The 'FOREVER' was a white plastic button.  I coated that with VersaMark ink and embossed once with antique gold embossing powder.

Thank you for stopping by xx
