DT Michelle Mirror Stamping Techinque

Hello there!
 DT Michelle here on the CDD blog today showing you what I created using mirror imaging stamping!!!
The Craftin' Desert Divas products I used are Nice List stamp set, Harvest Happiness stamp set, Fall Border Dies, Flag Banner Dies, Treat Bag Die and Outdoor Landscape Dies.

Ok, so let's take this step by step...we'll stamp the mirror image first.
I used my Mini Misti, Memento black ink, CDD Nice List and Happy Harvest stamp sets, a photopolymer resin stamp specifically for mirror image stamping (many manufacturers have them), and a piece of cardstock.
First I stamped the deer, masked it, than stampsed the hay bale. Color it, cut it and set it aside.
Place the deer stamp on the open clear door. Place the mirror image stamp block on the white part of the mini.
Ink up the image and close the door. Do this several times to get a darker image.

The stamped image will not have defined edges...this is normal!!! Now, I take the stamped block off the Misti and place it 
Mask the areas you do not want the image to appear.  Stamp the mirror image onto the cardstock base of the card. Press the image with firm pressure but not too hard.
Repeat this step using the bale of hay.
Next step is to die cut the background scenery. I used the row of trees and homes from Fall Border Dies and a die from Outdoor Landscape Dies to resemble an icy lake. 
I inked up the horizon with seedless preserves and faded jeans distress inks than added some splatter makers of white paint. Allow to dry.
 I inked up the "icy water " with Color Box ink in cape cod and added a few more splatters of paint.
I used Copic Markers to color the deer and hay in shades E40, 41, 42, 43, E70, 71, 74, 77, E0000, E93, G000, YR21, YR24. I added some white accents with a gel pen.
I attached the stamped banner and die cut star with a mini clothespin.
I hope you give this a try!!! It's easier than it looks!!!
