The background was done on a 4.25 x 5.5 inch piece of cardstock. I pooled several different colors of Tattered Angels (Electric Blue, Pomegranate, Dragonfly, Sun Sisters) on the cardstock—no soft sweeping here--and used my heat gun to dry them. Once the background was dried, I stamped the image using Staz-On ink and used my ATG to adhere it to the card base. I then cut a length of white seam tape and dyed it to match the card with Electric Blue Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. A multi-loop bow with a Cutter’s Creek Flower glued in its center was adhered to the card base using Glue Dots. The embellishment is a Sizzix die cut with my Big Shot, slathered with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint and set aside to dry. Once it was dried and crackled, I used the same Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to color the heart. (This Technique called Shattered Stains. It is in T. Holtz’s second compendium, page 48, if you’d like the specifics.) I wove one ribbon tail through the heart and used mini Glue Dots to loop both tails in place, added a sentiment inside, and my mother’s card is done.
