Don't you just love it when you find a great new use for an everyday tool? I was working with the Bird Banter stamp set and really wanted to have two toucans facing each other. I've seen many mirror technique tutorials but didn't have the tools required to easily create a mirror image. I started to look around my craft room and thought, I wonder if the Silicon craft sheet would work to transfer an image? It did!
Check out my quick 30 second video at the end of this post to see this mirror technique in action.
Create a mirror image of any stamp image using the Silicon Craft sheet! Simply stamp your image directly onto the mat and then press your cardstock firmly to the sheet to transfer the image onto the card stock. Voila, a mirror image! For best results be careful to stamp clearly and do not move or wiggle the paper when transferring the image.
It took me a few tries to get an image I liked. I have such shaky hands sometimes. This technique will work like a dream with the new Stamparatus stamp alignment tool. Until then I'll have to keep my shaky hands in check.
