Monday’s challenge on Splitcoast was to create a Telescoping image, not card. We were to stamp our image several times and cut and layer it with different colored shaped dies. It took me a while to find an image that would work for this challenge, but I finally settled on the gorgeous Dove and Holly set from Flourishes.

I stamped the image twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. One was cut and embossed with a large Circle Nestabilities die and the Out of the Box Technique as well in the center with a small Circle die. The second image was cut with a medium Circle Nestabilities die. The images were colored with Copic Markers (Doves: E40, E41, E42     Leaves: YG91, YG93, YG95      Branch: E23, E25, E27     Berries: R08, R27, R39     Beak/Claws: YR23, YR24). The circles were sponged with Antique Linen and overstamped with the Christmas Music Background in the same color. The biggest circle layer was stitched before it was adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Tear Drop Circle die. The other layers were adhered to the base with dimensionals.

A 3″ x 4 1/2″ piece of MME Lost & Found Christmas paper was adhered to a 4 1/2″ square of the same paper pack and stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of Neenah Soalr White cardstock. Burgundy Organdy Ribbon was tied around the layers before the stacked image was adhered with dimensionals. Part of a Finesse Pearl Swirl was adhered to top right and bottom left hand corners of the layers.

A sentiment from Dove and Holly was stamped in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the smallest Petite Oval Nestabilities die. The inner part was sponged and overstamped with a small image from that set in Antique Linen.  The sentiment was adhered under the bow before all layers were taped to the card base, which was cut out of Kraft cardstock with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
