Heart swap

On CQ for Newbies, we're having a heart swap. These are two that I've made for the swap. I used "fancy" fabrics for these two, but I think they are lovely made in cottons too.
The lace in this one is dyed with potassium permanganate. It gives lace a wonderful non-metallic gold color. I bought this motif from Cathy K .

This one has 5 different vintage metal buttons and some schiffili lace that I dyed myself with alcohol inks.

Both hearts are just beautiful! The ladies you are swapping with are really lucky :)

Lovely hearts, Janet. The vintage buttons are a nice addition!

BTW, thanks so much for stopping by to visit.
