Bake, cool, and cover your cookies a day prior. You may cover the cookies with plum coloured fondant or royal icing both coverings work perfectly.
Creating the Base Colour:

Limoges style painted cookie by Bobbie Noto

I chose to paint the royal icing border with plum dust!

When you first learning my Tole (One Stroke) painting method using petal dust is easier then using food gel to achieve success! As you confidence grows you may want to try food gel or use both mediums.

You use Fondant or Royal Icing:
Day 1:
Cover the cooled heart cookie with an 1/8 thick Plum/Magenta fondant heart shape, allow to set over night.
Day 2:
Cut out an off-white 1/8 thick fondant heart, being mindful that the fondant magenta heart is one size larger than the fondant  off-white heart;  allow to dry over night
Paint the Victorian Floral Swag on the dried off-white royal icing heart
Pipe the royal icing running bead border, allow the dry, and paint with plum dust

The rose resembles antique china Limoges!

Royal Icing:
Day 1:
Cover the cooled cookie with a  pre-coloured Plum/Magenta royal icing. Allow to dry 7-9 hours
Pipe an off-white royal icing on to magenta icing, being mindful that this heart is one size smaller, and allow the heart to dry overnight.
Day 3:
Paint the Victorian Floral Swag on the dried off-white royal icing heart
Pipe the royal icing running bead border, allow the dry, and paint with plum dust
