CCEE1543 - Reflections

Maryann continues as hostess for the CCEE Stampers blog again this week with a challenge to create something with reflections.  It could be in a mirror or on water or a verse that looks into the past.  I chose "water" for my reflection.


I stamped the image on waxed paper to get the reflection.  After I colored the "real" trees and the "reflected" trees, I masked the top and sponged some Tim Holtz Salty Ocean and Vintage Photo ink on the part of the picture that was "in the water."

Check out the CCEE Stampers blog for more reflections.

Really beautiful, Lois - it's like a book illustration. Your colouring, and reflection, are simply wonderful.

Nature's reflection of itself is always a thing of beauty. Way to capture it on your card.

I love what you have created with this gorgeous country scene, Lois! Sensational sponging on the sky and the muted reflection in the water! Exquisite work!

This is a beautiful scene Lois. I have tried so hard to make a water reflection card this way with little success, but I have thought of wax paper. Thanks for the tip I will give it a try. I also love the embossed trees on the side.

Incredible card - but I don't understand how to use wax paper to get this wonderful image - could you share the "how to"?
