I used a Tim Holtz Fades Damask embossing folder on the background paper inking up one side of the folder first with Rose Red ink. Then I went back over the embossed paper with a brayer loaded with some more Rose Red AND flattening it down for a stamped layer of the script verse stamp in CTMH Cocoa. I sprayed some watered down Chocolate Chip re-inker on the paper and then some Marshmallow Tattered Angels mist. Distressed that patterned paper and sponged the edges. Straight stitched it to a mat of brown paper with brown button thread.
The cluster is a Labels 1 die on soft suede and edge distressed and sponged. A dusty rose satin ribbon ruched on each end. A love collage stamped in CTMH brown bag ink and misted with re-inker and heat gun dried for spot stains and I left the natural curl from it drying. Edge distressed and sponged and mounted on Glue Arts sponge adhesive. The heart pendant is made from DIY porcelain clay with pink re-inker mixed in and an eye hook into the top. It's threaded through a distressed and wrinkled Martha Stewart silk ribbon and layered underneath another same ribbon tied in a bow. The shabby flower is a DIY leftover from my MOPS group name badge project that I glued onto the ribbon and card with Alene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue. Whew!
