TGIF 161 Thinking of You Reflection Challenge

TGIF is right!!! Not sure that it even matters though with the kids OFFCIALLY on summer break as of Wednesday! I must confess yesterday was a bit of a struggle for us all to find the Summer Normal but I think that today will be a drastic improvement.

One of my favorite things about being on the TGIF Design Team is that it continually pushes me outside of my creative comfort zone. With that being said, new techniques SCARE me! This weeks challenge is a Reflection Technique and I was petrified! I may have scrapped a card or four, then I finally nailed it. Let me show you...

So I was not kidding when I scrapped a few cards before getting this right... This was my favorite! I started by using my sponge daubers to create my sunset like background. The colors I used in order are Berry Burst, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive. Once I had achieved my desired back ground, I simply stamped one of the many trees from the Rooted in Nature stamp set using Stazon Jet Black ink. Now a word of caution, when you are ready to make your reflection, you will not be able to use Stazon, so use Memento if your reflection is going to be black. My gold Heat Embossed sentiment is also from Rooted In Nature and is on a nice Berry Burst stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. It is nicely layered onto a Gold Foil circle from the Layering Circles Framelits. A simple double bow of Linen Thread was all this card needed for embellishments!

Thank You so much for stopping in today! I can't wait to see what you create with this fun Reflection Technique Challenge!
