I created this card as a sample for Wednesday’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. I thought the bouquet from Autumn Blossoms would work great for the Telescoping Image Technique.

The image was stamped twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on white cardstock. The images were colored with Copic Markers (Y13, Y15, Y17, YR12, YR16, YR18, G20, G21, G24 ,G28, YG11, YG13, YG17, R24, R27, R39) and cut and embossed with Classic Oval LG dies. The edges of the larger ovals were sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress ink before the layers were adhered on top of each other with dimensional adhesive. The ovals were then adhered to Kraft cardstock that was hand cut into a slightly larger oval layer. All layers were adhered to white cardstock, cut and embossed with the Floral Oval Nestabilities die.

Pieces of patterned paper were cut and embossed with the second smallest Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched before Sheer ribbon was tied around the layer and through one of the Floral Oval openings of the frame.  The bow was topped with a button, tied on with embroidery thread.

A sentiment from Autumn Blossom was stamped on white cardstock, cut and embossed with one of the insert dies from the Fancy Framed Tags One dies. The raised part was sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink.

The layers were adhered to a card base, cut out of white cardstock with the second smallest Grand Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl over the bow and a few single Rhinestones on the top right finish off my card.
