Art postcard using gouache paints

I printed out some cute clip art and I focus on searching for whimsical objects.  So, I printed a bunch of hearts and I instantly knew that they are growing on a tree.  I made it 3D like, and I used embossing powder on gouache wet paint in order for it to stick before I heat set it.  It was much easier than waiting for the paint to dry and then add Versa Mark glue. You could say I was impatient to wait anymore.  The hearts, by the way, took a long time to glue down.
