I thought I would explain the reflection technique today and share Mat's ( From Hochanda) favourite card.
I stared this card by placing the rectangular media plate at the base of the piece of card and picked it up with the top plate of the press to impress. Next I stamped the tree stamps ( from the winter trees clear stamp set) directly onto the medium plate. I closed the door and stamped this onto the card.
I then ran my brayer over the media plate with the inks that had remained on the brayer which gives the lovely reflected colour look.
Next I stamped the tree, again using the press to impress, in the correct place to make the reflection. I then drew, using a fine line pen, a little base for the tree and masking the base i used the top of the tree to make the impression of bushes and foliage.
Next I added a couple of the blue izink dye ink pads to the media plate smoothed over with a hard brayer and stamped this to give the sky look at the top.
Finally I added a few more sections of bushes to the reflection again by masking off the area at the top.
OI layers this with black, white and blue and aded it to a small card blank. I think this would make a perfect just a note, thinking of you or even a sympathy card.
