Paper Smooches Sparks - Sept 24-30 Picture Perfect Challenge

This week's Picture Perfect challenge from Paper Smooches is a kind of challenging to me. Here is the inspiration photo:

After looking at this picture for 3 days, except the colors (green, baby blue, and white) and the clock, the reflection of the mirror reminds me on the "reflection" stamping technique. So, here is the card I made:

I used the clock image from the Perpetual Bliss set and applied the "reflection" technique to make three reflections of the clocks. Then, colored the images with Distress Ink Pads and water brush pen. The "happy birthday" text is from Sentiment Sampler set. I finished the card with a die cut border at the bottom of the card and attached a border of chevron washi tape inside of the card.

Here is a closer look of the card:

Cardstock: PTI
Stamps: Paper Smooches (Perpetual Bliss and Sentiment Sampler sets)
Ink Pads: Distress Ink Pads, Memento
Others: water brush, border die (PTI), and washi tape (Queen & Co.)

Thank you for visiting my blog. 


  1. This is brilliant! How'd you do that? What a fantastic card!

    1. Thank you, Chris! I use a piece of acetate sheet and stamp the clock on it, then flip the acetate and press the inked image on the white cardstock. You will get the reflection image and the rest of the works are coloring.

  2. Love the reflection techniques you used! Really CUTE card. So glad you played along with us in this week's Sparks challenge!!!

  3. WOWOWOWZA! I love the mirror image! FUN idea---THANKS for playing along and joining in the fun over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge:)
