Amour

Yesterday (Day 8), on the CAS online card class, Jennifer Mcguire showed us how to do the "Mirrior Image" technique. Before I stamped my birds on my paper, I practiced the technique on scrap paper. (I stamped on the plastic for a very long time before I was satisfied with the results.) I tried stamping the image on the back of a clear stamp, but I didn't get a very good impression. Then I tried using a piece of vellum, but I still didn't get a good impression. So, I used a clear sheet of plastic packaging and that worked very well. After I traced over the image with a black copic marker my image looked like it had been stamped in the normal way. This is a cool technique and I had fun experimenting to get the results that I wanted.The stamps that I used are Hero Arts: Hugs & Kisses Birds CG155 and Paris CL325. This is all for now and will be back again soon. Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments.

Great results from your experimenting, Sue! Jennifer made this look so easy; but I'm afraid I would lose patience with the whole technique. Guess I'm getting lazy in my old age :)

Well Done Sue, it looks wonderful, I have tried this technique myself and had the same issues, I have not tried it since!

Hi, Sue! Have a great time visiting your family here in Ohio!! Do they live anywhere near Canton??? If so, it would be neat to meet you in person. Just sayin'!
