Thursday Tutorial - Reflections


All stamps by Lasting Impressions with Panache

double stick tape
Adirondack Eggplant ink pad
White photo corners – colored with eggplant ink
Base white card 4 ½ x 6 ¼.

1. On a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than base card stamp sailboat with Eggplant ink pad on top of card. Without cleaning the sailboat stamp mist it with water and stamp beneath the main image to create the reflection.

2. To create faux water between the stamped images rip a piece of paper in a wave like shape. Place the wave ripped paper between the stamped images. With a stipple brush stipple aqua and purple ink to create the look of water.

3. Sponge the same eggplant ink onto four photo corners then put them on the four corners of the stamped card. Tape the stamped card with colored photo corners onto the base white card to finish.



  1. Great instructions. Can't wait to try the technique. Thanks for the info.

  2. Clearly written directions for a great technique. Many thanks,

  3. Very beautifully done. I especially love that ship card - reminds me of Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End movie! :)
