Heart of my rose

I went shopping this week and found some wooden, paint you own heart shaped boxes.  First thing I did was throw everything away except for the heart shaped box.

The pink paper I used is from HOTP and I have had it for years.  I have distressed the edges a bit with an emery board and my Tim Holtz paper distresser. The bow is made from crispy lace and then I added loads of roses and chrysanths.  The ivory flowers have been slightly tinted using tattered rose and worn lip stick distress inks and I have frosted all of the roses by lightly brushing them with ivory pearlescent ink and dusting with iridescent embossing powder.  I finished off with some glitter glue for a bit of added sparkle. (That seems to be happening a lot lately).

 The large pearls came from a broken bracelet and I have added loads of mini pearls (flat backed) to finish.

I have added lace and ribbon to decorate the sides plus a single bow for detail.

I am entering my heart shaped box for the following challenges and then I am off out to buy more boxes :o)
