Love life (even in antique style)

This is my new altered chipboard (bare one I just recycled with a lot of gesso over it). I used a lot of tapes to cover this chipboard- great way to use all those hoarded tapes.
First the overall look over this board
And now for some techniques used here- with the highlight of WOW Embossing powders and Tando products.
The basic tapes were covered with another layer of thin gesso and then I used texture paste to make all those swirls with Tando mask. The wet paste was covered with Metallic Gold Regular powder and heat embossed all over.
The chipboard shapes were heat embossed partly with Primary Ebony Super Fine powder and then I added Ruby Romance glitter over the still bare parts.

The  whole board was misted with a mix of gold, pink and light yellow mists (LSG).
Then I made WOW! molded shapes: small rose and this big fancy heart. Both were made with Melt-it and a pitch of color. The heart shape was then embossed over with the same Ruby Romance glitter (please make it very quick as you will melt the inside shape)
The metal frame with the word Love was originally in silver, but I just made it gold with Metallic Gold Super Fine powder and added this stamped Love word (Inspired by Stamping)
The other embellishments added were the old recycled gold chain with a bead on the bottom; the die cut word LIFE (CLD); Prima misted flower that was white and a vintage diamond shaped button.
As you can see everything can be done  using Wow! powders: you can cover your texture and backgrounds; can make your own embellishments;can  change any other colors and you can make your chipboards shiny in any possible color.
Now it's your turn to play with WOW! MONTHLY CHALLENGE. Make something Antique with heat embossing of WOW! products and you can be  the winner.
