Stamping Sisters Camp Winter 2021 - Day 2

This is the second day of the Stamping Sisters Mini Camp. Yesterday Barb stretched us with all of those little bits of paper for our background. Today Darlene is the teacher and she's having us make reflection cards - you know, the ones where the image is reflected on the ground/water. Please check out all the details/instructions on her blog - HERE.

Well, let me tell you... I feel pretty certain that I failed this class. I just hope they let me out of detention in time to do Kelly's class tomorrow.

I tried... and tried... and tried again. I finally did the technique of using vellum (turn it upside down after stamping) to get my reflection. BUT it just looks odd.

It was fun trying - well, the first or second attempt. LOL! By attempt #3 I was just ready to call it a day.

Here's my card... Grade: F!


Darlene, thank you for challenging me; that's what this adventure is all about! I know you will be much kinder to me than I am to myself. 

Be sure to check out the cards on Darlene, Kelly, and Barb's blogs, too.

I think you card is very pretty and I love the vellum--looks like a river! Good job today and if I were the teacher, you would get an A!

I love your wonderful trees reflected on the vellum. Sensational card, Jeanette!

Very ice technique with the vellum and it gives it such a striking look - great job!

Darlene LeTavec said...

Oh Jeanette, this is WONDERFUL! First of all I love the trees - they are so striking! I also think that the vellum looks like a river, and up against the trunks of the upright trees looks like a river bank. I think your grade should be an A. Hey-I'm the "instructor" so I get the last word! Thanks for your patience and adventurous spirit with this challenge.
