Reflections by Gnome......

My Stamp Addicts blogging group on SCS has started a monthly challenge- and this is #1- reflection.


 I recently recieved this SU set as a hostess gift for having a SU party- how fun is this?  This set is called Gnome, Sweet Gnome.

I know there are a thousand tutorials for doing reflection techniques. I just stamped the images on clear packaging (like acrylic) and turned it over and rubbed it onto the cardstock.  I colored the image and reflection with Copic markers.  Next, I colored the image and reflection with a versamark marker and clear embossed it. Then I brayered over that with Soft Sky, Baja Breeze and Blue Bayou. 

The Stamp Addicts logo is on my sidebar- if you are so inclined, hop on by and see what the other members created for the challenge! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Well, Shelly, I am TOTALLY impressed!! The stamp set is cuter than cute and your reflection technique is not one that I read about. How inventive of you and I love how it looks. The lantern up above creating the light for the reflection is great.
I'm gushing. Everything about this card is just SUPER!
