With all my heart

I love recycling things and when I went to a car boot sale back in the summer I found these heart shaped note holders that were crying out for a different spin.

I created a little metal shaped heart for the inset, covered the outside with Ferro and then dry brushed it to give a further dimension to it.  When all that was dry I painted the inset and then filled it with glossy accents to protect the metal.

Before and after

Now I just need to work out what to do with the other note holder!
