For my project today, the nearest stamp I had to this project was the oak tree from Lovely As A Tree #128655 (W) #127793 (C). I have the wood mount style so couldn't use my Stamparatus on this occasion. Instead, I inked up tree image using Early Espresso, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow markers, using a 'Thumping' technique.
I then stamped image down onto a Silicon Craft Sheet #127853. I pressed my card on top of the image and pressed really well to pick up the inked image. I then reinked my stamp again using the markers as before, and with the help of my retired Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to position my wood stamp directly opposite as a reflection.
I used the rough end of a bath sponge to 'swipe' the blue ink across the feinter image and then again with some clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush #141897 to add some shine to the water effect.
My sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings #146664 (W) #146667 (C) and added a Leaf Punch #144667 under the sentiment flag. The 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon #144213 was wrapped before all the layers were stuck together, tying off with a knot to the side.
That's all from me today but before you go, take a quick hop over to Becki HERE and then on to Emma HERE and see their take on the reflection challenge.
Next week we will be creating our inspiration from one of our German colleagues, you can see Andrea's blog HERE.
