My TLC89 mirror image card. I used Lovely as a Tree because it lends itself to a beautiful reflection of the water and life. I stamped the trees using Stazon Timber onto V. Vanilla (after stamping off once). Then I stamped the image onto vellum again stamping off. I flipped the vellum image after sponging colors on both sides to get mirror image. The ribbons cover up the break between the vellum and CS. I sponged, stipple brushed, aqua painted, and used markers on the main image using many different colors of ink and markers. My work area looks like a hurricane hit! Kind of like the pouring down rain and wind we are having on the southern Oregon coast. What a challenging and fun technique. Thanks again Beth, Beate and all, Nancy

You did a gorgeous job on this Nancy. This was a hard technqiue for me but I will give a few more tries. I think it just takes practice. Your coloring is lovely and the coloring for you water and reflection is exceptional.

Oh my word, Nancy, this is truly a LOVELY REFLECTION!!! WOW!!! You did an amazing job -- this is gorgeous!!! And thank you so much for that explanation -- that is where I wasn't getting it at all -- you are actually USING the vellum you stamped on and then flipped and stamped again -- right? For some reason, I had the idea the vellum was used only to transfer the image to the cardstock, not used -- now this is making more sense to me -- thanks!!! This is truly beautiful!!!
