Reflection Technique

My, it has been a long time since I've gotten a chance to sit down and blog.

I wanted to share an example of the Reflection Technique, which I'll be using at the March meeting of my Techniques Club next Friday. (We have room at the stamping table, so let me know if you are interested.)

I've tried this technique before, but was always hampered by the need for an acetate sheet. Now that SU! has the clear-mount stamps, I thought I'd give this fun technique a shot with the acrylic blocks. It works!

I love techniques that help us expand the ways we can use tools we already have, and this one is great for that. To make my card, I used just one stamp (the cat from C is for Cat), one acrylic block and aquapainters, in addition to card stock and inks.

Using the aquapainters and different ink colors to create the scene can give a whole new look to a familiar image. I love it!

We're in the last two weeks of Sale-A-Bration, Stampin' Up!'s biggest promotion of the year. If you're interested in earning some free product with an order of $50 or more, let me know. There are some really nice stamp sets available this year. It is also a great time to start your own business as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. SAB ends March 31.
