You're Pawsome

Hello everyone,
It's Merlina here, just stopping by to share a card with mirror-stamping techniques.


These are some steps to make reverse-image :
Ink up the stamp and stamp it onto an acrylic block (if you use a stamp positioner, you can repeat 2 or 3 times onto an acetate to make the image sharper)
Then, stamp the block onto a piece of paper.


As there are so many mirror stamping techniques, and I think not all images can be made to reverse-image, there are some tips to consider :
- The reverse-image will be a second generation stamped image, so the ink will be lighter than the original, so it will be better for reflection and shadow.
- You can stamp the second generation image with any media, such as plain rubber stamp, acrylic block, or acetate, however a stamp positioner will be more helpful to transfer image easier, as you can stamp several time onto the same positon.
- Slow drying ink will also help to transfer image

Supplies :
Pawsome-friends stamp set

Happy crafting !!
