Heart Tin

I've discovered something pretty cool - I may be the last person on earth to have discovered it, but I'll tell you about it anyway...  It's a product called Pearl Pen.  I don't remember what I was really looking for, but this caught my attention.  I have to say, I am really impressed with how it works!  No air bubbles (so far) and it really stays in pearl form - no flattening at all!  I got mine from Stuff4Painting.  I only got cream and black.  Now I'm going back for more!

This darling vintage image is from Nicecrane Designs.  You can also see the pearls made with the pearl pen.  I bought a bunch of these red heart tins years ago.  I've used them several times, but felt like they needed to be covered.  But, this time I felt like this little cutie matched the red perfectly.  Also, instead of placing it bottom down, I decided to design it tilted on its side.  

I wrapped the bottom with a couple rows of a punched border die.  Ignacio has quite a few wonderful Valentine images to choose from.  

This is just one of the sets. Check out Nicecrane Designs for Valentine images here.  And check out the blog for more pretty projects.  Have a wonderful week!
