Be what you want to BE

Hello!  Thanks so much for stopping by
 
Have you ever tried mirror image stamping??  I had not ... until I made this card for the So Suzy Stamp Mirror Image event.   I can see this will be a technique I will use more in the future... You definitely need a good silhouette stamp or solid image for this to work well. 
 
Products used from So Suzy Stamps:
 
I first took my sun stencil and made my background.  I blended out the inks to make a more vibrant look using Tiki Torch and Orange Twist from Catherine Pooler.
 
I then held my breath and had Justine Hovey's YouTube video playing while I gave it a try.  Believe it or not, this was my first try.  After I did it, I said geez.. why didn't I practice on a scrap piece of paper first.  Anyways, thank goodness it turned out great the first try.
 
I love this technique and I'm so glad So Suzy Stamps hosted the challenge.  I love to try to things and this will be one I keep in my think tank.
