Default Reflection Technique!

Does anyone know of a good tutorial anywhere that can show me how to do the reflection technique! You know, like if you stamp a row of trees and there is a relection of them in water for example! I have no idea where to even start searching for this tech so any help would be much appreciated!

Default Reflection Technique

Stamp your row of trees high enough up on the card to allow for the same distance on the reflection. Take a piece of transparent paper and stamp your image (I use stazon) on it. Use the image on the transparent paper to apply to the reflection area. The transparent paper will act as a stamp, holding your image until you apply it to the card. Rub very gently so as not to smear it.
A second say is to "roll" the stamp on your brayer, then roll it off your brayer onto your paper. I prefer the first technique, especially for a larger stamp.

Veronicaskreations has a great video tutorial on mirror imaging. (you could use acetate or a brayer instead of the blank stamp Veronica does)

(an also one on the stamp-a-ma-jig if you're challenged like me at using it )

I did this little guy using the first technique mentioned. I always keep clear plastic packaging for tecniques like this. The reason I like to do it this way is because it is so easy to line up your "reflection" thru the clear plastic rather than to try and match up the rubber stamp shown in the video. Of course that is just my preferance, that really was a very informative tutorial!
