I made a soft mixed media card that has more "depth" than meets the eye. I started with Smooth White Card Stock, which I primed with gesso. I stamped the Distressed Background Blocks on it. Then, I added another layer of gesso to soften the impact. The flower was then stamped and heat embossed with clear embossing powder to set the ink (which doesn't dry well on gesso). After the embossing powder dried, I sanded it off so I had a soft, matte finish.
I added a rectangle of pierced holes in lieu of matting the image or adding another layer. I wanted my "art" to remain uncovered as much as possible. The sentiment was stamped on a Kraft Fishtail Flag with Hot Fudge ink and I added a simple Kraft Button. I sponged all the edges with Kraft ink.
