Reflection

Good morning. Today's card resembles an earlier posting. Although an old technique it is new to me. Using a multi-coloured ink pad, I brayered colour onto card front. Once dried, Lovely as a Tree images were stamped with Stazon onto card front, and once again onto acetate. The acetate was turned upside down and laid onto the card front. With light pressure my fingers tapped over the stamped image to transfer the Stazon onto the card front. Acetate was gently lifted and whalaa--a reflection was made. This is a very fun technique. Good luck with your card.

BEAUTIFUL Beth... I've always wanted to do a reflection card, but I always smear it... I think I press to hard and it turns into a ugly mess. I love your card and Lovely as a Tree is the perfect stamp for this technique ~ j
