Technique Tuesday!!

Welcome to Technique Tuesday!!  

Today I am featuring the Mirror Image or Reflection Technique.  The glossy "reflected" area is hard to see in the photograph, but IRL it looks like water!!  The sample was done using our Lovely As A Tree stamp set (IBC, pg 114; item # 115026; $27.95). 

TECHNIQUE INSTRUCTIONS:  Ink and stamp the image onto cardstock.  Ink your image with the same ink and stamp  it on a piece of acetate.  Flip the piece of acetate over so that your stamped image is upside down and stamped image is face down.  Line it up with the first image to create a reflection.  Place the acetate on the cardstock.  Rub over the acetate, transferring the image from the acetate to the cardstock.  If desired, to create a “water” or “ice” effect, apply a thin coat of Crystal Effects to the image (that was transferred from the acetate) and surrounding area.  Let dry thoroughly.  Add to card and embellish.

THANKS and as always...

Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'!
