For VSN-I, Sonja challenged us to make a reflection card. The way I learned this was using the "Kissing technique". Does anyone else still do this? I first stamped the ship image on the watercolor paper, then I stamped the ship image on a solid rubber stamp (from the long retired set Shape of Things). Next I turned my paper upside down & stamped the image from the solid rubber stamp. It didn't copy perfectly but I like to think that this sometimes happens with reflections. I hope you like it. I'm anxious to see others' creations & read how it was done.

Excellent reflection card. How you described the technique is one of the ways I've heard about. The reflection doesn't need to be perfect and almost looks more natural if it is not totally clear. I like how you stamped the water. Awesome card. Well done! TFS

Wonderful reflection of the ship on BIG water! The kiss technique is exactly the way to make a reflection. The mirror image "stamps" that are sold are just big blank slabs of red rubber, so you did it perfectly. Thanks for participating in my challenge.
