There's a distinctly autumnal feeling in the air here and that's got me reaching for my lovely Autumn Days stamp set - perfect for those country living men in our lives! I thought it would work well using the reflection technique - yet another great reason for owning a stamp-a-majig! You just stamp the image you want reflected on the imaging sheet and then press the sheet onto the card stock wherever you want it. Let's have a closer look:
The image comes out indistinctly - which is just how it would be if it were reflected in water - and because the imaging sheet is clear, you can see exactly where you're putting your reflection. I used a scrap piece of paper to make a line to divide my water from my land and sponged Soft Suede and Always Artichoke in for the land and Bashful Blue for the water. I love this technique!
I haven't put a sentiment on this card as I'm using it as a notecard, but it would be easy to add one. Earlier this year I made another card using this stamp set and I'm just thinking that it would be nice to make a set of these cards.

I've had an exhausting weekend trying to sort out my Crafting Square Metre - the picture above shows how messy it's become. I've taken down the cupboard and shelving which were parting company with the wall; put all my stamps and other stash in boxes, filled and painted the walls and sadly that's it for the moment. I'll hate living with all that mess so I'll be trying to figure out some amazing space-efficient way of storing everything as soon as possible. If you have any bright ideas do let me know! I was rather touched by all the comments that seemed to assume I really was buying that amazing craft cupboard I showed on Friday's post but I have to tell you that it's just a little bit over my budget! (Well, okay a lot over!)
Thank you for coming to visit today. I'll be back tomorrow and I'll hope to see you then.
