LIM - Metallic Heart

Hi everyone! Chrissie and Mandi over at Less Is More have set us the challenge of metallic this week.

I've had great fun playing with a set of Suze Weinberg ultra thick embossing enamels.  I must have had them at least ten yeas and never used them.  I cut an ornate heart shape, and mat, on my Silhouette.  I double embossed the mat with the black enamel and then sprinkled just a little paltinum into the black while it was still molten, then re-heated with heat gun.  I then triple embossed the ornate part of my heart with the platinum and glued that to the previously embossed mat.  I also embossed the WMS sentiment with the platinum.  The heart is 11cm x 6cm (41/4" x 21/4").

Thank you for stopping by xx
