autumn reflection

A few days ago I was showing a friend how to do the Reflection technique and I really liked the color combo and stamp set I was using so I decided that I needed to make a card.  Besides, I was in need of thank you card anyway.  I can’t believe it’s already September, can you?  So I guess a fall-ish card is ok…

Directions for the reflection technique can be found on Splitcoast here.  This is a pretty clean & simple card.  The hardest part would be stamping the wheat and even that was simple.  Just mask off the bottom and stamp 3 times.  Then place your piece of acetate over top of the wheat and lay your mask over the bottom again.  Stamp the wheat 3 times again onto the acetate, directly over the first ones.  Then remove the mask and flip the acetate over.  Rub the images into the water area.

I hope you have a great holiday weekend!

    Beautiful fall card. And your right about the colors. It looks just like a misty morning at my house. I’ve always stayed away from that technique but maybe it’s time to give it a try.
