Oxides and Hearts

Morning and we have a new challenge at Crafting With Friends sponsored by KJArting but unfortunately after playing up for a couple of weeks my printer has now died a death!!!So not wanting to miss out I have gone ATG.I swiped two colours of oxides down black card stock and edged with Cosmic shimmer gold polish,the heart die is from The Works and I had to cut another from darker card as the red glowed almost fluorescent when I took pics !!!I framed a piece of chalked card with my new die from Gummiapan.I added a wooden heart and as Valentine day has gone I tucked in a reduced 50% tag both from stash-I then thought the heart looked a little stark so added a little die-cut cameo been in stash for years goodness knows from where?All except the heart was added on pinflair glue gel for depth.
we have had grandaughters this week with it been half term so we had a baking after-noon-Holly made a cake from scratch(no cake mixes) all her own work and Ellie made chocolate chip cookies but didn't want a pic taken!-both absolutely delicious.

DOX over the black is just gorgeous! Have seen that done, but not tried it for myself as yet. Love the hearts, and I like the layering of these hearts too. Always loved the cameo head silhouettes, pretty here. Enjoyed seeing the picture of the sweet baker...she's so cute, and will grow into a beautiful young lady. Glad you're able to enjoy some quality & fun time with her. TFS & Hugs. (things are well, we're just away at the moment)
