Hello Angela here with a new technique that I have never tried before, Debossing.  I really liked how it turned out and it is definitely something I will try again.  I really love this die from MFT too, can't you tell?

* Trim lilac cardstock 28cm x 10cm  and fold in half
*trim watercolour paper 14cm x 9 cm
*Using MFT Dienamics  Abstract heart and pat with versamark ink pad. Don't press too hard just a light coverage.
* replace a plastic cutting plate with the rubber mat, then the watercolour paper and then the die and sandwich with the top cutting mat.
* cover with ranger silver embossing powder and heat emboss.
**note**  I would maybe go over the imprint again with versamark pen to get a better coverage.
* wet the area imprinted with a wide paintbrush painting from top left to lower right.
* dab water colours over the wet area and let colours move around.
* repeat again so you have a beautiful splash of colour and set aside to dry.
* using a versamark pad and white cardstock smear a good portion around taking cake to complete the whole area you want covered.  It doesn't matter if you miss though as you can repeat this step again.
*Cover with Ranger Silver embossing powder (this heats up beautifully) and heat emboss.
*once cooled die cut Lawn Fawn Die CHEERS and adhere over heart with pop dots.
* add a little wink of stella
* adhere a few silver dots
* Adhere to lilac base card.


  1. Lovely card Angela... that heart die can be used to make cards for so many occasions...the Nuvo metallic drops look great.. didn't know they came in metallic shades too..

  2. What's not to love with that die - loved your previous post featuring it, and now you've demonstrated a new way to use - debossing! Great result - and a lovely card!

  3. So pretty. Love the colours you used too
