Now, on to my card.  I used the Portrait Of A Fairy stamp by stamp designer Christina Lynn Myers. Today's theme was orange, which I think I managed to pull off, even if I did throw in a small amount of purple and black.

I was going through my stash of stamps and found this one that I had completely forgotten about.  So glad I did too!  It was my inspiration for trying out a technique that I haven't used in a very long time.

What technique would that be?  Mirroring a stamped image, of course.  To create the mirror image, I simply stamped the image on the left directly onto my white cardstock.  Then, I stamped the image again onto a piece of transparency.  Then, I simply flipped the transparency over, lined up the image with the one I had previously stamped on the cardstock, then rubbed over the image to transfer the ink onto the cardstock.  Instant mirror image of your stamp.

I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils, then added Stickle accents in orange and green.  I added a bit of washi tape under the image.  To finish the card, I used a die to cut out a spider.
