New toys :)

Hey everyone, another post from me today, this time I want to share a project with you that I made using my new toys, my Cameo & Meltpot. Is it possible to be in love with a machine???? If so, I am lol

After trying a few cuts & flowers I knew I wanted to do a little wall hanging. So decided on this wooden heart & I did it for my mam for Mother's Day
I firstly painted on some gesso. Once this was dry I added my paper, cut around it & distressed the edges. I then used an Indigo Blu stamp on it. 

I cut all my embellishments (hinges, a banner, dress form, leaf flourish & the flower layers) from white card stock using cutting files. I then inked & stamped on them before dipping in my Meltpot, I had to use my heat gun too as I had some big blobs, but I'm sure I'll get used to it soon. I am determined not to let it end up in a press.

I love making flowers & the fact the UTEE makes them sturdy enough for home decor projects is great. 
I then simply sat for a while arranging them until I was happy with the layout. 

Thanks so much for stopping by & I would like to enter the following challenges:
Craft for the Craic: Heart
Papertake Weekly: With a heart
All Crafts Challenge: Anything but a card
Sparkle & Sprinkle: Use embossing powder
