Yay - I got a Melt Pot!

Hi everyone, it was my birthday last Sunday and I decided to spend some of my birthday money on a Melt Pot. I couldn't wait to play with it. It arrived on Friday and I started making this project yesterday, finishing it off this afternoon. I've decorated an MDF heart from the Hobby House...

I made the flowers with a Spellbinder Bitty Blossom die and First Edition papers (Hobby House). The birdcage is a die d-lite called Bird Cage One, also cut from matching First Edition paper. The flowers, leaves and birdcage have all been dipped in UTEE in the melt pot. I love that glossy finish. I've rubbed some gold lustre onto the bird cage too. I painted the heart using cream acrylic paint and then added spots using a mask and frayed burlap distress ink. I've assembled it all, adding a doily, bow, gold pearls (Hobby House) and some wired pearls. I'm really pleased with the result.

I would like to enter this for the following:-
Crafting for all seasons - no stamps

Thanks for visiting, I hope to see you again soon. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
