I used the Spray Pen to add a spray mist to my box before I put it together. I mixed 3 drops of Hollyhock re-inker with water and our Create A Shade Pearl Paint. By only using 3 drops of Hollyhock, this gave me the lighter color of pink that I was looking for. I cut out 3 sizes of Hearts <Heart1> with my Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to use as mask before I sprayed. I added removable adhesive to the back of the hearts and placed the hearts randomly on my box.
Here is the box after I sprayed it with the mist and the hearts removed. You can see the masking. Something to note... I placed the box inside a large box to spray. Otherwise, the mist goes anywhere and everywhere! But that is what gives it this fun effect!
Before assembling my box I stamped a Heart Dimensional Element with the heart stamp that accompanies the Art Philosophy Cricut Collection. (The collection comes with 3 stamp sets in addition to 3 sets of dimensional elements!) Next, I added Bitty Sparkles to the heart and adhered it to the carton. I used the little words that were on the same stamp set to stamp on the other hearts.
Again, using the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge, I made a tag to tie onto my carton. I cut the tag at 2 1/2" using the <Heart1> Tag setting. I used one of my hearts I cut out previously for masking to place behind the cut out heart shape on the tag. Then I added a Sparkle for bling! I tied the tag on with ribbon from the Tulip Mini Medley Accents Collection.
Now all I need to do is fill it up with Chocolate!
