Heartfelt Creations-Telescoping Hideaway

 Do you know what day it is?  It's Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, my favorite day of the week!  This week I want to show you a new technique I found at SCS called Telescoping Image.  I didn't do mine exactly like the way the challenge directions were-but I love the results.
 So I put a little spin on this.  It seems I purchase a Krylon Pale Gold leafing pen back in September of 2011 at the Creative Keepsake convention and haven't use it.  I was going to use the pen to run along the edges of my acrylic albums.  So I had the idea to run that Krylon pen around each spellbinders die cut in the telescoping image.

Here is a close up what it looks like.  So I carried it a bit further and ran that pen along every edge of every piece of paper that was placed on this card.  The die cuts, the flowers, the punches, the design paper.  I loved the result.  So what do you think?  Is this something you would do on your cards?   Be sure to check out the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see my Design Team Sister's Beautiful Creations.

I enlarged your photo so I could see the gold leaf pen around each nestie, and it is awesome! Looks like the smallest layer of gold paper beneath each nestie.

Even that butterfly is gorgeous, looking like stained glass. As always, Carol, your work is absolutely amazing! NO lie!
