Sarah Hurley 365 Celebration

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my creation for our 'Celebrations' challenge at Sarah Hurley 365. I found this faux slate heart a while ago, it was plain and so I wanted to jazz it up and I had the idea to heat emboss prettiness onto it with white embossing powder and I am really pleased with the distressed effect :-) It wasnt the easiest project as the base is obviously uneven and so I had to clean mistakes a few times using soap and a toothbrush (it was the only way to get the embossing ink off completely, I tried baby wipes first!). I did a section at a time, securing the image by heat embossing it, then moving on to the next image I wanted to use. The only thing was it took ages to melt the embossing powder because the slate would just absorb the heat-but I persevered and got there eventually-just be aware of this if you choose to do the same-youll need somewhere heat resistant to rest it on and dont burn your hands trying to touch the heart straight after heat setting.
Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)
