12 Tags of 2014 - February (Part II)

Hi everyone!  I'm back with my second tag of 12 Tags of 2014 - February.  You can will my other one here.

In many cases, when I am making a card or a tag, I tend to make a couple at the same time.  They are sometimes very similar but sometimes quire different.  Here, I am using similar techniques but different products, resulting in a Valentine's/ Love card:

I started with using the Movers and Shapers hearts but they were too small so I went with the other heart with wings and a crown.  I layered the hearts with different glitters and it does pop out nicely.  I used distress paint on the crown while stickles on the wings.  The variety of shimmer gives it a lot of dimension.

I have never played with my mirror sheets and since I had the movers and shapers hearts out, I wanted to give them a try.  I wanted to create the effect that when the recipient receives the card, he/she sees him/herself through the hearts, as if my heart is filled with him/her. 

Did I mention that sometimes I make similar cards at the same time because I try to avoid the risk of starting all over again in the event of a mistake?  When I was preparing the tag's background, I accidentally used the Frosted Crystal instead of the clear embossing powder.  The frosted crystals look nice on the tag and I'll save if for a different project.
