Using stamps to get a reverse image.

Hi it's Tania here with my second spotlight of the month, over at 

 Today I will use stamps from the March A few of my Favourite things kit of the month and show you how to get a reverse image from one stamp
Here is my finished card where I have 2 little birds on a hand drawn branch. For the sentiments I have used Sarah's Sentiment stamps 

I first inked my stamp with distress ink (This does not dry as quick as other inks) and 
stamped it onto a ink blending mat.

 Then you transfer the image onto your card by putting the card over the image and pressing hard.
If necessary you can go over the image to make it look crisper,
 I then stamped my normal image and you then have 2 birds.
I then drew a branch and tree adding leaves using a leaf stamp from this months stamp kit. I coloured the tree in caramel and the leaves in leaf green and the tree in meadow green Promarkers.I used my brushes and inks to create the sky
I have made the card for my husband for our Anniversary in July.
Thank you for calling by
hugs xx

Lovely card. I like that you've described how you got the reverse image as well.

What a great idea to use the blending mat - I've tried plain rubber stamps and acetate, but wouldn't have thought of that!
Thanks for sharing - cute little card!
