Mirror Image Event Joint Blog with My Sweet Petunia, So Suzy Stamps and The Ton

It's day seven of the Mirror Image event, hosted by So Suzy Stamps.  I'm so happy to be sharing my take on mirror stamping, featuring the Rose Bloom, So Suzy Ink Bites and the Thoughts and Prayers sentiment.  Although sympathy cards are not always a cardmakers favorite thing to do, due to sad circumstances, I do make quite a few as a church ministry outreach.  I know you'll be seeing lots of creative ways to use the Mirror Image Stamp, so here's yet another way.




Be sure you are commenting on the featured project every day, (to be entered into the drawing for prizes) which will be added daily to this blog post, here, plus, take a look at the short video at the end of that post that shows you how to use the mirror image stamp, designed specifically to be used with the Misti.   





I've got a short video of my own that shows how I stamped the mirror image of the Rose Bloom.  




Once I stamped my images, I did some watercoloring with several of the So Suzy Ink Bites, including Mellow Mint and Caribbean Coral from the Coastal Breeze Ink Bite collection, and Happy Hunter and Simply Sinful from the Autumn Equinox Ink Bites collection.  Just press your ink pad onto a craft mat and grab the colors with a water brush.  I like to use up my scraps of sticker paper that is leftover from my Xyron machine.  So easy and clean is a breeze by tossing in the trash.  A great alternative if you don't have a craft mat.





I used a white gel pen to soften the edges and add some highlights.




When dried, I decided to amp up the color by adding the Mango Marmalade Ink bite colors from the Autumn Equinox collection and some tiny black dots with a Marvy extra fine black pen.  The cardstock that I'm using is from DCWV and I've also added some polka dot ribbon from American Crafts.




Isn't that sentiment font fabulous?  I love it and this is a must have sentiment to add to your collection.  Below are some affiliate shopping links.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
