Fabric heart

This fabric heart is for a decorated heart swap, so I decided to do it in fabric rather than card. I know the person it's going to likes vintage, so hope she likes it. The background fabric is sort of old fashioned, the image is on fine cotton, with lace and flowers added.

Metal fronted key cupboard

Where has the last month gone, it seems like the year is going too fast.
As we have a little time at home for a change, I decide to tackle the key cupboard that has been on my to do list for a year. It has been sitting in it's bare wood state for ages, and the one we were using wouldn't close.
I painted the wood with a weak-ish solution of Precious metal paint, and put some Croco crackling paint in platinum on the front surround, and when dry rubbed in a small amount of Treasure gold.
I used a green metal for the front, and did some free hand work, and used some of my metal embossing moulds. I then lightly sanded the top to take some of the colour off, and touched some bits of it with lettuce alcohol ink. I then got all gluey by sticking it down with UHU glue.
