In the closeup below you can see the details of the layering better. You can also see the light background stamping I did using the "Hardwood" background stamp. To get that faded look, all you have to do is take a piece of Stampin' Sponge, ink it, and dab the stamp a little here and there. Then take the piece you are going to stamp[ and place it on top of the background stamp and without moving the piece of cardstock, gently rub, or use your brayer, to imprint your background. Who says you have to have the background stamp in it's entirety?
Here, in the following photo, you can see the background effect again where I stamped the sentiment.
Below is a side view. The only thing popped up, with dimensionals, is the foreground flower.
I used the same background technique for the inside of the card. With using Sahara Sand, the background is light enough that it won't interfere with what you write on the inside of the card.
I also off stamped more than once to get lighter colouring with the same ink pads. Have fun with this technique! (What I used will be at the end of this post)
