this week at sweet pea stampers

is a challenge made for me :)
everyone who knows me knows I only wear black & I love anything B&W, so this week at sweet pea stampers they asked for B&W & one other color
I chose a color I would not normally :)
but I do like how this card turned out!

I started this particular card & just knew that I had to reverse the image I wanted to use, to best suit my layout.
I did this by stamping the image on transparency on the slippery side and then laying it wet side down on my paper. The image you get is not totally crisp, so I stamped with stazon on another transparency, flipped it once it was dry. I then colored my "not so crisp" image and layered my crisp "stazon" image overtop it. I really think she needed to be facing the other way...I did it...and I love it!

here are some pics of the making & the final project
thanks for comin by

this is the inside...hope you found this a new & fun technique
give it a go :) and then come back & leave me a link
I'd love that!!!
see ya soon
