Step 1. Remove cover from Heart Tin and paint with Gold Luxe Paint, set aside to dry. Apply a second coat if desired.

Step 2: Paint the wood U with Magenta Luxe Paint. Let dry.

Step 3: Paint the watercolor paper with watered down Magenta Luxe Paint to achieve a sparkly watercolor wash effect. Let dry.

Step 4: Stamp the diamonds on the magenta watercolor wash with permanent black ink. Add additional magenta highlights if desired. When dry, use the coordinating die to cut them out using your die-cutting machine.

Step 5. On a second piece of watercolor paper, trace the bottom of the heart tin and cut out with fussy cutting scissors. Cut small enough so that it fits inside the tin.

Step 6: Paint the paper heart with watered down Gold Luxe Paint, add splatters of Magenta Luxe Paint and let dry.

Step 7. Stamp “sparkle” on watercolor paper and cut into a small strip.

Step 8: Layer the heart, diamonds and word sparkle together as shown in the example with foam dots. Add to bottom of tin with several more layers of foam dots.

Step 9: Stamp the wood letter with the diamond stamp and VersaMark Ink several times. Sprinkle with Gold Embossing powder and heat set.
