Handmade eggshell heart.

Hi everyone!!
Today´s card is for this week´s CASE study challenge# 92.

I made this heart using egg shells.I kept the eggshells in soap water for some 7 to 8  hours and then separated the membrane from the shells.I sprayed some antibacterial liquid and then they were ready to use.I tried few shapes on the cardboard and pasted these shells and then I painted this with marble colours.I have used Red,Magenta and Gold colours....though gold colour is not so visible in the photo.

Square frame around the heart is handdrawn.
I am entering this card to the Gallery Idol Challenge by Paper Magazine. 

Thanks for stopping by!!
