New Technique!!!

This Technique was on Splitcoast Stampers last week. I have always wanted to learn how to do this and was so glad to see that they picked this technique to demonstrate. So enough rambling about this and on with the How To.

You will need the following items:
Piece of Acetate ( i used laser printer transparency film)

Step 1: Ink your stamp and stamp it on cardstock

Step 2: Ink stamp again with same ink and stamp it on the piece of Acetate

Step 3: Flip you acetate over so your stamped image is facing down. Line it up w/your 1st
stamped image to create the reflection. Place Acetate on cardstock and rub. It will
transfer the image (a little lighter) from the acetate to your cardstock

Step 4: Color the ground underneath your image. Add water or ice looking background around
your reflected image.

Step 5: Finish your card.

I hope you enjoyed the technique and have fun with it. Until my next rambling...have a wonderful evening and weekend :)
