Hello, dear friends!
Heat embossing is my favorite technique to color the chipboard shapes!
I inked the Lace-Up: Celebration, Stars with VersaMark and sprinkled some neon yellow embossing powder on (I use a piece of scrap paper for this):
Put the excess powder back in the container and use a heat gun to melt the powder.
I repeat the process a couple of times, for a smoother look.
I die cut a piece of patterned paper and adhered it on the white card base:
String some yarn through Lace-Up: Celebration, Stars and add some foam tape on the back:
I stamped the sentiment on a strip of paper, tore the sides and inked the edges. Add the strip and the Lace-Up: Celebration, Stars on the card:
