Welcome! It's another Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop day!!! Must be Wednesday!  

Are you here from Helen's blog? Nice to see you! Glad she's back after her computer snafu!!! If you're not from Helen's blog, so glad to see you!!!

So this week's colors are:

Perfect Plum, Marina Mist, Rose Red   
Perfect Plum, Early Espresso, Whisper White

And the added twist is:

a technique that is new to us!

Now those colors are a bit challenging together anyway! But how do you come up with a technique that is new to you?! If it's new, how do you know it exists?!!! lol  

So for colors, I went with the second group. Kinda reminded me of winter! Yuk! But good for a card! lol

Now for technique, I went thru some of my swap cards from convention & found one that I said, "Hmmm, wonder how they did that?" Did my research, & came up with the "Mirror" or "Reflection" technique!!! More details follow!!!

So here's the card:

So the Reflection technique involves creating a reflection as if looking at something in the water. Now you probably are saying (or not!) that you need a reversed image stamp to do that. But no!! You don't!!! It's a cool technique that I'd love to share with you at a class or workshop, but for now, just know it exists! lol

Here's a closeup of the design:

You can see the reflection better than in the first picture! 
Different, huh?  I pulled out my trusty old Lovely as a Tree stamp set! So much use out of that stamp set! It's still beautiful no matter how "experienced" it is! Not too much else used here! Very simple card! I did use the  
Perfect Plum to pull in the background. I think it looks like a winter night at sunset!

So now lets pop over to Laura's blog & see what technique she decided to give a try! You know it's gonna be a winner!!!

Until next week!!!

Oh, btw, it's SALE TIME!!! Don't miss this year's Holiday Sale!!! Formerly known as Online Extraveganza, it's sure to "tease" you with some super goodies maybe even for gift giving for your favorite stamper-or even maybe a "selfie" is in order!!!

  1. So pretty, and a great technique. Love the stamp set, it is one of my all time favorites. I hardly ever put it away.

  2. Joni, this is gorgeous! I thought about this technique, but I couldn't think of a stamp set for those colors. Great job!

  3. Thx guys! This was a neat way to learn something new! Lovin' this week! Not so much the colors tho!! lol
