Chipboard heart and Buttons

My post today is a finished chipboard heart started weeks ago-I covered the heart in panpastels then lost inspiration-but then I bought a glue gun and with inspiration from Lesley Wharton(Chocolate Baroque) I used quite a few from my large stash of buttons,dewdrops and a little metal Dragonfly all stuck down with the glue gun.I then covered everything in black gesso,added a black bow and a white embossed stamped sentiment from Sheena Douglas,I then highlighted it with mica pwd,posted it to FB and Teresa suggested I use gilding wax instead,it would have been rude to ignore so I bought some lol Cosmic Shimmer Gold Treasure-it came today and what a good buy it really did make a difference -thank you Teresa-really chuffed and you can actually see the Dragonfly now too.
