Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrators Techniques Blog Hop

Another month another Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrators global Totally Techniques Blog Hop.  Our technique this month is all about 'reflection'.  This is a fun and easy technique and all you need your stamp, ink and the acetate imaging sheet from your Stampin' Up! stamp-a-ma-jig, stamp positioner.

If you've arrived here from Nadine's blog what did you think of her wow project?  You're here now with Zoe Tant Stampin' Up! UK demo and I've used the perfect set for nature lovers and also a great set for men's cards, Stampin' Up! The Wilderness Awaits.

So the reflection technique is achieved when you stamp an image onto your card stock and then stamp the image again onto your imaging sheet. Stamp it carefully so as not to smudge it.  Then turn the imaging sheet through 180degrees and flip it so as to place it onto your card stock below the original image.  Do this carefully and don't allow the imaging sheet to move.  Then gently rub the imaging sheet sheet so that the inked image on it goes as a reflection image on your card stock.  

I've actually heat embossed my first image in whisper white and then used my aqua painter, markers and re-inkers to colour the Mallard and the reeds.  I also used a watercolour wash to colour the sky and add water to the reflection pool.  

I've added some burlap with machine stitching and sentiment from Wetlands stamp set along with some foliage from the Wetlands set too!

Your next stop on the Totally Techniques blog hop is to Barbara Meyer in Austria.  Thanks for joining our hop and please do comment along the way so we can visit you too.  

Enjoy hopping Zx

Such a work of art Zoe and I love that you have stitching on there and heat embossing. . . the colouring is gorgeous. Great stamp selection and highlighting of the technique.

Oh wow! I've never understood how this reflection technique is done, thanks for explaining, love the effect. And the stitched on burlap is a great detail, this texture fits in with the scene of nature.
