Mirror Image--You have to use something slick to stamp on--a transparency, your Stamp-ma-jig plastic, some people buy large, smooth shadow stamps for this purpose, and I've heard of using an extra large, flat school eraser. Stamp your image on the slick surface, the ink will sit on the surface and not sink in. Now stamp with the slick surface image. It will be a mirror image of the original. The mirror image will usually not be as clear as the first, so you have to practice, touch up, or allow for the cloudiness. I touched up with a marker. You will see mirror images used with Lovely as a Tree to make the reflection in a pond, I've seen it with the Adirondak beach chairs to make a pair of chairs, the boat lady in Summer by the Sea (reflection in water), and with the coffee cups to make a pair. You could use it with a female image to make her look in a mirror. Hope that helps.
