The Shabby Tea Room Week #100

I wanted to play along with this weeks The Shabby Tea Room challenge - Candy Hearts.  They challenged us to use a food theme and hearts.  After alot of pondering, I remembered that I had some nugget tins stashed away, so I decided to pull one out.

I originally intended to fill it with some Hershey's nuggets, but since the theme was hearts, I thought it would be fun to do a literal interpretation of the them and fill it with candy hearts.  Hearts are not something that I use alot for crafting or for my home decor, so I didn't realize until I sat down to design the wrapper for the tin how few things I have with hearts on them.  I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to use a stampset from Verve.  I colored the hearts on the frame with a Copic marker and then used a Glaze pen on them for some shine.

Supplies Used:
Paper:  More to Adore - Close to My Heart (CTMH)
Ink:  Chocolate, Hollyhock - CTMH
Stampset:  Sweet Treats - Verve
Punch - Double Loop - Martha Stewart
Copic Marker - RV11
Glaze Pen - Sankura
Mocha Opaques - CTMH
Ruffle Ribbon - Morex
Brown Tulle - Maya Rd.
Pink/Brown Ribbon - hoarded in my stash until now
