Twins before digi

Almost got this done in the morning but a delivery got in the way and it wasn't even a crafty one. Thank you all for your lovely comments on my fun card. I've got to admit to having been a bit caught up with my digi bits lately, you can just flip it at the click of a button. So I didn't want my stamps to start sulking so I thought - well I did this before digi and here is how, I stamped my image onto acetate and quickly flipped it over onto the card and pressed hard, then I re-stamped it's identicalish (ok, it's not a word) twin along side him. If I wanted totally identical I would have used a slightly lighter shade of ink for the second but I was happy with it. I didn't have the plural stamp in the sentiment so I got a cocktail stick, took ink from my stamp pad and added the "s", must remember to keep an old pen to do this with.The mirror card made it difficult to photograph.

  4. Hi Flora, What a great idea to get a mirror image. Stamping has not grabbed me yet but in time, maybe. It funny how we can work out problems your 's' is perfect.


  5. Lovely card, love the stamp. I tend to neglect my stamps for my photographs at the moment, perhaps they are sulking in their boxes, must have a look :o)
