Reflection of a Horse

Reflection of a Horse
You may be surprised to learn how I created the reflection of the horse image on this card! After I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig tool to achieve perfect placement of the image on the Confetti White card stock, I simply turned over the imaging sheet, matched up the horse’s feet with the stamped image and rubbed the ink from the plastic onto the paper with my thumb. I then placed a Post-it note over the “reflected” image and used a sponge dauber to lightly add some Always Artichoke ink. Afterwards I moved the Post-in note to the other side and sponged some Blue Bayou ink for the water.

Two sheets from the retiring Western Sky Designer Series Paper were used for the background, and I tied River Rock double-stitched ribbon around an Aged Copper Hodgepodge Hardware buckle to embellish the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I never would have thought of creating the mirror image with the stamp-a-ma-jig sheet! Very clever!
