Time for a Tart and Tangy Tuesday Taster!!!!

Now try saying that quickly after a few drinks!!!!! This is the new Tuesday feature for The Rusty Pickles Design Team. Every Tuesday (except on New Release weeks) the team will be showing off images from The Rusty Pickles Digital Delights shop, we will also be throwing in challenges along the way - for the DT but you could always join in if you fancy it!!!
Anyway without further ado here is my Tart and Tangy card for today.

You can find the image here.  I have coloured the heart using watercolour pencils and glittered the border and the detail with red and gold glitter respectively.

I have put a real button on the drawning of a button for added texture.
Here you can see I have layered the heart on to a scallop shape and added flowers which were from a candy I won at The Craft Table thanks Martine. I have also used some Cored'inations cardstock which has been embossed using my swirls cuttlebug folder, this has been distressed with sandpaper to highlight the detail. The sentiment was from a Fairy Doodles clear stamp set.

Whoops nearly forgot, I used the sketch at Stampin' for the Weekend which is shown below.

Please visit the rest of the team to see their creations.
