Timeless Tuesday #149


Since it's Tuesday, we've got one last Timeless Tuesday challenge for you in 2011!  Beate is our hostess today, and she's got a great technique for you to try!  I know you're probably super-busy this week getting ready for Christmas, but take a little time for yourself to do some stamping and give this Telescoping Image technique a try.  It may look a little intimidating but trust me when I say it isn't, especially if you check out Beate's easy tutorial over on the Flourishes blog!


I have to say, it was a relief to stamp something other than a Christmas card for today's challenge!  Whew... I love the holidays but I am tired of Christmas stamps, papers and colors!  :)

For my card, I decided to use the beautiful Gerber Daisies stamp set and the Labels 11 Nestabilities for my Telescoping Image.  I matted everything on the Lattice Rectangle Nestabilities with a piece of gray gingham paper from the October Afternoon "Farmhouse" paper pad.  My daises were colored with Copics from the Sunflower and Warm Neutrals Copic collections on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock, and I embellished with some dark gray seam binding, silver cord, a button and some Kaisercraft pearls colored with a W3 Copic marker.



Be sure you visit the other Timeless Tuesday team members today because I'm SURE they're going to have some beautiful inspiration for you using this technique!
