Today I Created | A Valentine heart tartlet that is both sweet and tart to go with my other heart tartlets.
I started off using the Sizzix Angel Wings die and cutting two matching wings out of Grunge Paper. Next, I embossed them with the Tropical Paisley Textured Impressions.
I used Barn Door, Distress Ink to color the wings. While they were still damp I used a brayer and rolled white acrylic paint over the surface which turned pink. When the wings were dry I applied Mod Podge and clear glitter.
Meanwhile I found a large red button and tied embroidery floss in the center. I glued lace around the edges and then hot glued it to the center of one of the Swedish Tartlet pans that I bought at an estate sale. This made the heart look very sweet.
The final part was to adhere the wings to the back of the tartlet pan. As I was deciding where to glue the wings I noticed that at this angle they have a little piece that shows near the bottom sides of the heart. This gave it a bit of a goth appearance. Maybe painted black and silver would make these look perfect for Halloween decorations. A Valentine heart both sweet and tart!
