Chipboard heart and Buttons

My post today is a finished chipboard heart started weeks ago-I covered the heart in panpastels then lost inspiration-but then I bought a glue gun and with inspiration from Lesley Wharton(Chocolate Baroque) I used quite a few from my large stash of buttons,dewdrops and a little metal Dragonfly all stuck down with the glue gun.I then covered everything in black gesso,added a black bow and a white embossed stamped sentiment from Sheena Douglas,I then highlighted it with mica pwd,posted it to FB and Teresa suggested I use gilding wax instead,it would have been rude to ignore so I bought some lol Cosmic Shimmer Gold Treasure-it came today and what a good buy it really did make a difference -thank you Teresa-really chuffed and you can actually see the Dragonfly now too.

Birthday Card With Braille

Morning and back with my second post today which is for the Just For Fun challenge at Simply Papercrafts.I was asked to make a bithday card with 3-D layering,texture and music as the boy is blind but loves music.I heat embossed the music images which are from Inkadinkado to raise the edges,metal music note charm,some die-cut embossed stars for more texture,B.paper from BoBunny and I stamped and heat embossed more music images from Kanban,I then had the brilliant idea of printing off the Braille alphabet and wrote his name in Braille using liquid pearls for the dots,cardstock from Papermill Direct ans raised everything on 3-D foam for touch.I was absolutely delighted to learn the card went down a storm especially his name and the fact that shop bought cards are usually flat and smooth-so a missed niche in the market there I think.
