Happy Friday! I got my reflection card all done!! Woo Hoo! It was actually easier than I thought. I found a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers that was really easy to follow. So what do you think?
To make this card first I stamped the tree image on a piece of transparency then while the ink was still wet I "stamped" the image from the transparency to my cardstock. Then I inked the stamp again and stamped the image above the transferred image. The image from the transparency looks faded, giving it the "reflection" look. Here is a close up.
Next I added some grass and leaves with my Bic markers. I wanted an autumn look to the card. I then cut the image out and matted it on copper paper. Then I cut out a piece of striped paper to 5"x5" and matted that on beige paper. I then cut a piece of orange and gold paper to make a 1.5" strip down the left side. I then wrapped 3 different ribbons around the orange paper and around the right side of the striped paper. I then glued the pattern paper on my 5.5"x5.5" card base. Next I added my matted stamped image and I was done! I actually got the layout from Splitcoaststampers too. I think it's sketch challenge 193 (it might be 192 I don't remember).
All of the pattern paper and ribbon I got at the Target Dollar Spot! What a deal! The paper came in packs of 8 sheets and the ribbon had 3-6 styles depending on the width and you got one yard of each.
So did you give this technique a try? If so I would love to see what you came up with. Well it's back to work for me tonight:( I wish I has some more time off I was enjoying being home. Hope you have a fabulous weekend.
