Love Hearts.

I have show cased this on my Butterfly challenge #5
Here is how I made them.
First up though the ingredients.
Cardboard heart shapes. Purchased from NEC last Nov.
2ply torn kitchen towel, Mod Podge Tester pot paint
Inka  Gold.
Having covered the shapes  using the torn paper and glue.
I left to dry to harden.
Once dry a quick coating of paint ' Dusted Fondant'.
Left to dry again and then the Inka gold applied with a soft cloth.
Then the fun began decorating.
The lettering is part of a packet of Decorative wood Embellishments by Prima.
Sequins  are from 'Poundland'  a huge bag of mixed sizes and shapes.
This bag was the pink /mauve selection.
Hessian  was from  Docrafts bare basics range.

Butterflies are from the SU 'Papillon  Potpourri' stamp set.
Stamped onto snippets of white card coloured with Promarkers and hand cut out.

Gold coloured charm was from my stash of charms.
Chosen because it happened to match the cut out shape and continued the theme.

The finished  hanging plaque.
