Hi everyone! Today I would like to share a fun reflection card I made with the new "Keep Climbing" set by Our Daily Bread designs. A couple of years ago, I bought a "reversing stamp" from Repeat Impressions at a craft show, and I had to dig it out from my stash to create this reflection scene. Some stamps are easy to create a reflection, such as trees or items which are fairly symmetrical, however this scene was a bit different. A "reversing stamp" is a large rubber stamp which is totally flat. Ink up your stamp, stamp it onto the reversing stamp, then quickly stamp the reversing stamp onto the paper. I would suggest practicing a few times in order to get it just right.....and make sure your ink pad isn't dry or there won't be enough ink to transfer. After your reflection is just right, then carefully link up the original stamp (I use a Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp positioner), and stamp it above the reflection. Now you're ready to cut and finish your panel!
