Outlines Lots of Layers challenge

Our team challenge this week for Outlines Rubber Stamp is Lots of Layers.  And we are supposed to use some Smooch ink as well.  Please stop by and visit the rest of the incredibly talented team and see what they have created for you.

For my card, I decided to use 4 of my Outlines Flower Mandala stamps.   Using Versafine black ink and Neenah Classic Crest Solar white paper, I stamped and cut out the following
Flower Mandala 3, I stamped it a second time to trim out just the center flower portion
Using Copic markers and Smooch ink to color them.
B12, B14, Azure Smooch
R21, R14, Siren Smooch 
For my card base, I used my Cheery Lynn Designs French Flair Stackers die, sliding the die up just a bit so the card has a fold.   I used my new Cheery Lynn Designs Silver Stacker for the dotted paper background.  Next I built the flower, the first layer I adhered right to the background.  For each of the other layers, I used pop ups and twisted the patterns as I went.  Click on the picture on the right for a good view of the lovely dimension of the card.  I added a pearl to the center of the top layer with my Viva Decor Pearl Pen and I was done.  Finished size is 5 5/8" square.

What a beautiful medallion design card. I have to get the French Flair die so I can use that in my artwork as well.
