Well,it's been a while...
,,,and I've been doing a lot but not stamping.
Vacations, sewing, knitting, reading, gardening, planning more vacations and Spring cleaning (yuck)!
Now I'm hoping to get a bunch of posts up before I head back to the sewing machine to make Christmas presents.
I was also watching a bunch of you tube videos for new inspiration in my card making.
I found the following YouTube video for ...
...and then I did exactly what I wanted.
I started with a piece of white card stock for the base card and added layers of black, aqua and green.
For the main piece I used the lady in the boat image from Stampin' Up's "Summer By the Sea" (2006) on white card stock with StazOn Jet Black ink.
I found a piece of acetate from a card set and stamped the image on it using the StazOn and very quickly laid it under the first image.
I gently smoothed it to make the "mirror".
using my Prisma color pencils I colored the main image a little darker than the "mirror" image.
I colored the entire front of the card, missing the main image but coloring over the "mirror" image.
Next I took my eraser and smoothed out the entire card except for the main image.
I trimmed everything, ripped the one edge of the main piece and taped everything to the base card.
To finish I stamped the verse from a My Favorite Things set, from at least three years ago, to the front of the card using the StazOn.
