Day Dream

This is my second time joining a challenge over at Flourishes. Betty a great online friend introduced me to these stamps. I have yet to put in my order(waiting to get Christmas over) I do however have a long wish list there. I went through the gallery and found many sets I fell in love with. I can't wait to order. Ok on with Beate's challenge;
Telescoping image












Beate, provided great easy to follow instruction here. As I was going through the DT's examples which were great, I was thinking of an image I could use. I recalled this girl I purchased sometime back from a clearance bin(no company listed). That's where I began. I stamped it three times and began to color the base. It took a bit of time to decide which of my spellbinders I wanted to use I finally settled on my distressed edge rectangle. I had great fun with this one, I love to color and I even think I may be just getting a bit better with my copics. I did sponge the sky and ground.
Well that is it for me today, gotta get to work.

Colleen, you card is marvelous! Yes Beate gave great instructions, I am working on one now, this is a technique I had not been able to master until I read her tutorial. I hope mine turns out half as well as yours. Love the four layers with a flower that is to die for and a cute ribbon. Love the colors too!

Perfectly done for this challenge! Friendly warning--Flourishes is addicting--but in a good way--LOL! I recently got on their bandwagon & haven't looked back!
