Papertrey Ink MIM--Layered Embossing

The Make-it-Monday this week at Papertrey Ink is layered embossing.  This technique caught my eye right away.  I am currently in love with heat embossing.  Who knew you could layer it up!

I pulled out my lonely mat stack die and stamp set ( I need to add more mat stacks.  I love these little suckers!) and started playing.  I added some distress ink, text backgrounds and a couple other fun stamps.

I started by stamping and embossing the frame and sentiment in gold.  Then I stamped the flowers in artichoke, layering it on top of the frame.

The background was created by layering distress ink and then stamping a script from text backgrounds.  I muted all the colors and image by spraying it with water.  I finished the card off with a sheer green ribbon.
