Thinking of You

This week, my blogging friend Lynn of Creative Crafts by Lynn posted a card using a 'reflection' technique. You can see her card HERE.   I have never tried this technique so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

Wow - it took me about 4 tries to get the image the way I wanted it (even using my stamp-a-ma-jig) - but here's my final product:

I grabbed my Hero Arts tree stamp for my main image.  After stamping it once, I flipped the paper over and lined up the image stamping it again (not re-inking).  Then I took a few Distress Inks to color in the backgrounds. This turned out to be a very colorful card!!  I masked off the top portion and sprayed some perfect pearls and water to the 'water' part.  I finished it with a PTI sentiment and some bling :)

I also followed the sketch from the Creative Belli Blog Challenge#138. Along with the sketch, you were supposed to use 'old' or 'forgotten' embellishments.  Well, I grabbed a really old brad!

Have a wonderful day.  I'm off to visit my parents in FL and to go watch a few SHU Softball games.  Be back in a week :)

Thanks for your visit!

Well, look at you!!! I LOVE THIS! Really like the way you did the background for the tree. The reflection is wonderful too!
They really aren't easy to do are they!!! Four times isn't bad - I'm too embarrassed to say how many "tries" it took me!!
