This is beautiful!
How do you do the reflection using a window sheet? I've only seen where you ink the stamp, then use the brayer to trandfet, then put the brayer to the paper. I never have luck with this way. The window sheet may be my ticket to finally being able to do this. I love your sample.

Thank you so much for all your compliments. A couple of you asked how to do this technique.... The window sheets are found on page 204 in the Idea Book & Catalog. They are transparent. I cut mine into fourths.
I use whisper white cardstock, and stamp my image at the top. Then, I re-ink my stamp and stamp onto the window sheet. Turn the window sheet inkside down and lay it opposite your original stamped image. Be careful not to move it, and rub over the image with your finger. Carefully lift the window sheet, and you should have a mirrored image that is a little lighter in color than the original.
Then you just use the pastels, or inkpads or whatever you want to add some color. In this card, I did the sunset with the pastels, and then sponged color onto the trees using my sponges and inkpads.
