Flourishes Timeless Tuesday 149

Welcome. This is my third and final week as Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Guest Designer.  I have had so much fun and thanks to all the Design Team for being so friendly and having me as a part of their talented group.
This week  Beate is the hostess, and the challenge is to use the Telescoping Image technique. "Stamp your image two or three times (I did four) and cut it smaller every time for a layered look." Check here for a great tutorial by Beate. I have never used this technique but I always enjoy trying something new!

This card, using  one of my very favorite Flourishes Sets "Zinnias", is my thank you to the  Timeless Tuesday  DT.  I stamped the bouquet image four times on White Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black and then cut in graduating sizes with circle dies. I colored the image with Copics, Glaze Pens, and added Glossy Effects to the bowl. On the white card base, I layered an embossed mat and attached a Pink Doily.  I embellished with a double layer of ribbon and placed the telescoping image (assembled with dimensionals) on the card. I finished with a sentiment tag on a loop of ribbon and a bit of bling. I also did the inside simply with a  doily and sentiment. See photo lower left.
