This is my first post for the Third Coast Creative Coterie. That is a fancy name for the design team. We have all been busy crafting away. Check my side bar for all the Creative Coterie members' links. And find more inspiration on the Third Coast Blog. For my projects I have used a stamp named "Doireann Dancing". I was playing around with reflection stamping and thought this image would be really great for this technique. In the first card, I was envisioning ladies in a pink ballroom dancing to beautiful music. The ladies are totally wrapped up in the music and the dance.
Doireann Dances Stamp- Third Coast Rubber Stamps
CS: Blushing Bride, Rose Red- Stampin' Up; Textured Wine- The Paper Company; Glossy White
Ink: Jet Black -Stazon; Perfect Plumeria-VersaMagic
Stamp-a-ma-Jig: the plastic sheet
Make card from Blushing Bride CS. Layer with pieces of Rose Red and Textured Wine CS cut slightly smaller. Stamp the first image on Glossy White CS favoring the right side using the Jet Black Stazon ink.
To Make Reflection image:
Stamp the image with Stazon ink on the Clear Plastic Sheet that comes with the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Flip the Plastic Sheet over so that the inked side is facing down towards the CS. Press the Plastic Sheet on the glossy white CS favoring the Left side. You should now have two dancing images facing each other.
Color the images with Watercolor Crayons blending the colors with fingertip. No water needed. Add the Perfect Pulmeria ink to the Glossy White CS using the Distressing tool. Add lots of ink and blend well. Tie a bow in wide Pink Ribbon using a piece about 20 inches long. Wrap the ends of the bow around the front of the card to the inside and glue. Add five Pink Pearls in each lower corner and nine smaller White Pearls along the bottom edge.
And, of course, I will give you a peek at the inside.
I think I will save the second Reflection card for next time. I will post it in a few days.
