Hi all! Another beautiful day here in West Virginia.....I did up 4 quarts of bread and butter pickles this morning and then embroidered a t shirt for my grand daughter. School stsrts back Thursday!
I saw this "reflection" technique on a card on Pinterest.....LOVE it! It took me a while to figure out how she did it. Secret is....the reflection is stamped on vellum then flipped so it is a mirror image of the top one. I used daubers and the Peacock ink along with SU Pink Pirouette ink to make the background. Under the top trees I used Liquid Pearl in white to make it look like snow. The base card is Paper Trey in a green that they no longer have available. To make the bottom look like water, I covered the area with vellum adhesive and sprinkled it with fine clear glitter. Til next time.....
