Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone,



I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping. This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the Mirror Image Stamp  which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the Mirror Image Stamp. In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the Mirror Image Stamp on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way!
The mirror image stamp is a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!


If you want a video tutorial on how to do this I can highly recommend you watch THIS VIDEO on youtube. Explains it all in very little time! Or you can see the same thing on my photo tutorial.


With mirror image stamping its best (I think) to start out with the mirror image. Postition your stamp in the Misti and ink it up a couple of times

 
Stamp it. I waited for it to dry completely - did not want to smudge the image when I sponged over it. You could also start out with the sponging. Does not really matter.


I sponged my sun twice - the reflection sun I sponged slightly less bright.


Masked my horizon and sponged again


Flipped the Post-it note and sponged downwards from the horizon using less ink, to keep it lighter.


Added gel pen accents to my "water". I trimmed off  the side and added a strip of dark gry paper

I started out marking my horizon. Positioned my mask for the sun and sponged it in yellow and orange distress inks. Repositioned the mask and sponged again below my horizon, just not as much color. Added the hills - torn post it notes  and flipped it for the reflection. Added the reflected stamp with my Misti and then stamped it again at the top half of my card. I did not add a sentiment, as I did not think it was necessary. Trimmed my panel and added a thin strip of black paper on the left.


I did not add a sentiment - I don't think the card needs one.

 You can find the complete list of bloggers on the So Suzy Blog.

Great idea for a water reflection

Meg Crawford said...

I agree, no sentiment needed on the front of this card. I like how the black paper on the left side of the card anchored the images. I'm not sure if I would have been interested in purchasing this image had I not seen it used with this technique. Very nice!

Kim Heggins said...

Wow...so beautiful. Will you come over and give me a lesson? please....

Bobby said...

The image you chose to mirror looks so fabulous with the inked sun and horizon, Cornelia. The light hand on the inking for the second image is wonderful.
