In the pink and gold card, I painted in just the pale pink for this heart and then run through with a Love heart embossing folder from Crafts Too. The next stage required patience! I lined up the heart over the embossing folder so it would keep firm and flat, then bit by bit I used my Versamark to ink only the raised parts of the design. Do this a a little at a time with a very light touch, if you rush it you will just ink the lower bits. Again because it's over paint, even if you use an antistatic bag, you may need to tidy up with a little paintbrush. I completed it in about 5 stages, so not too long - but worth it!
As a final detail on this card, I inked up some scrap card with my versamark and embossed it with gold and then punched out four little hearts to add to the corners - that way they match perfectly.
Fed up with hearts yet..... I'm not quite finished!... a few more tomorrow! :-)
