Wooden heart #1

Morning crafters......hope you're all well!
I have something a bit different (for me) to share today....a painted wooden heart!
We've had such a lot going on at home recently and me & Mr Mojo seem to have fallen
out cos he keeps disappearing lol so rather than sit at my desk shuffling bits of
paper around I thought I'd finish up some almost forgotten about projects & maybe
have a go at something new.......and this is something new!
I started with a plain wooden heart, inked it all over in black then gave it a coat
of grey acrylic paint. I then sanded it back a bit, stamped on the Indigo Blu verse 
& heat embossed it. Next I simply added a few embellies & a sprinkle of aged silver 
frantage & I have to tell you I struggled with frantage on paper but wow, on wood it
works soooo well! So that's my little crafty offering for today, thanks for calling &
 whatever you're up to hope it involves some crafty time!
