Tanya shares the Mirror stamping technique with us today, combined with Chameleon pens.
By Tanya Batrak
Tanya explains her inspiration for this technique" I like that Chameleon pens can draw on different surfaces, and vellum is one of them. This ability will help you if you want to try a mirror stamping technique."
Materials Used: Chameleon Color Tones Deluxe Set; Warm Sunset (YO3); Olive Green (OL3); Deep Violet (VO4); floral stamp; watercolor paper; American Crafts ribbon.
- Stamp image several times on a scrap piece of paper to make a border. If you are happy with the result, now you can proceed on a card.
- Make 4 ¼ x 7”card from card stock.
- Draw a horizontal line with the pencil to divide the front side of a card in two.
- Stamp image several times over the pencil line to make a border.
- Color each image with the brush tip using Warm Sunset, Olive Green and Deep Violet infusing each color before coloring for 3 seconds.
- Cut a piece of vellum (3x7”).
- Stamp the same image several times on a piece of vellum.
- Flip the vellum and you will see that the images now look down.
- Color each image on a vellum with the brush tip using Warm Sunset and Olive Green infusing each color before coloring for 3 seconds.
- Die cut the flower petals or cut them with scissors. Color each petal with the brush tip using Deep Violet infusing the color before coloring for 5 seconds. Add strokes with the same color with the bullet tip. Adhere all petals together. Color the center of a flower with Warm Sunset and adhere it on the flower.
- Adhere vellum, ribbon, flower and two petals on a card base.
This is such a great way to reverse the image of a stamp to get a mirrored effect, we will be bringing you more techniques soon from the team so do pop back soon!
