reflected sentiments (MIM, PDCC, YCU)

Another fun thing to try - reflected sentiments a la Becky V. over at Papertrey's Make it Monday.  You stamp onto a piece of acetate and then use the stamped acetate to stamp the reflection on the card.

I really like the Christmas card Betsy made.  Here is my take:

Looks kinda Christmas-y doesn't it.  Have to actually READ it to get it.  I went with some text stamps from Cosmo Cricket because they had flat bottoms and didn't look totally perfect to begin with.  I feared my reflected stamping might not come out perfectly.  And it didn't.  But it's Halloween.  That's cool.

I used the color scheme from Play Date Cafe #151 to mix things up a bit too.

Notice the faint hexagons.  Trendy, eh?  Just like the gals over at Three Cool Chicks.  Day #5 was about hexagons.  Here they are.

And since this technique was totally new to me, I'm playing along with Young Crafter's Unite Challenge #14 to Learn Something New.

Thanks for your visit.

Paper: card base Buttinette, CS Neenah & Papermania

I love how you used these colors instead of just black, orange, purple, & green which are more traditional with the sentiments. Nice job! BTW, I live near wine country - and I hate lima beans too!

Such a cool card =) I have never though of using reverse stamping/mirror stamping to make reflected sentiments like that! Thanks for joining our YCU challenge =)
