Strawberries & Chocolate Covered Tips!

I've seen all sorts of chocolate covered strawberries out in blog land. Who ever started this had the neatest idea. This is my take on adding chocolate tips to my punch art strawberries:


I used the cut-out from the Wide Oval Punch as my guide for adding chocolate:


The hearts were cut from Riding Hood Red Cardstock and the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits Die. Place the oval cut-out over the bottom of each heart. Using a Sponge Dauber and Early Espresso Ink, sponge the ink over the hearts to create the "chocolate":


Apply liberally, Crystal Effects to the "chocolate" area:


Allow to dry for about 30 minutes:


Complete the strawberries by adding tops to them with the 5-Petal Punch and the Bird Punch. I added a small row of bling to each branch with Pearl Jewels:
