Inkspirational Challenge - Dip

Here's my DT project for the 'Dip' challenge at Inkspirational .

The heart was made by dipping a cardboard heart into white embossing enamel in a melt pot. After it was set and cooled (well, several weeks later, actually!) I dipped it into glue and then again into glitter. The heart-rate monitor thingy was traced from a graphic I found online and cut on the Silhouette Cameo. I stamped 'lots of love' and added texture with an embossing folder.

I hope you'll come over to Inkspirational and see what our fabulous DT have made, and enter your own project.
