This month's altered heart uses candle wax as a finish. I used dark red cardstock for the background of my heart and stamped and heat embossed it with a white powder skull. I then dribbled black gesso down the whole heart in places and let this dry. You can't see it but I then stamped the right side with black ink branches of a tree. Using my heat gun I melted a white domestic candle to drip over the whole heart except around the skull. I stamped with white ink a spider's web in the top right section. The words "happy haunting" and a few vine leaves around the skull were also stamped and then highlighted with fimo gold powder. I then used the same powder to highlight the texture of the wax at the bottom of the heart. Finally i gave the whole heart a spray with semi gloss varnish.
