Reflections and Stamp-a-majig

At the Newbury Field Training in March, we used this
technique using the Stamp-a-majig to mirror an image.
Unfortunately, I lost the card we did and had to replicate
this from memory.

You will need 
1 sheet of A4 Close to Cocoa cut in half lengthways.
1  x 9.5 cm x 12 cm Choc Chip Textured cardstock
1 x 7 cm x 12 cm More Mustard scalloped along one
1 x 6 cm x 12 cm Old Olive cardstock
1 x 5.5 cm x 12 cm Whisper White cardstock
Scrap piece of WW cardstock
Choc Chip Classic Ink Pad
Stampin' Write Old Olive
Watercolor Wonder Crayons Bordering Blue
Blender pen
A length of 1.3cm So Saffron Striped Grosgrain
1 1/4 " circle punch
Scallop Edge punch
Designer button (optional extra)
Occasional Greetings - Happy Birthday
White Embossing Powder
 Forest Friends - "Bambi"
Mini Glue Dots
Heat Tool

Start by tying a bow a third of the way down
the Textured Choc Chip cardstock.  

Next punch out scalloped edge on More Mustard.  
With scalloped edge on the left hand side, punch 
out semi-circle approximately 1 cm from bottom 
right of More Mustard card.  Set aside.

Centre and stamp Bambi in Choc Chip on  the
upper half of WW cardstock.  Randomly tear 
WW scrap cardstock and use as template to mask 
grass line at Bambi's  feet.  Use Old Olive 
Marker to draw grass.  Ink Bambi in Choc Chip 
and stamp on smooth side of Stamp-a-majig.
Turn stamped image of Bambi upside down and
position stamped image of Bambi on Stamp-a-majig
to mirror his image.  Rub Stamp-a-majig to transfer
inked image onto WW cardstock.  This will be
a fainter image and resembles a reflection in the
water. Use Bordering Blue watercolor crayon to
"draw" ripples in the water and use blender pen
to soften edges.   Repeat process for upper half
of card to resemble the sky.

Align scalloped edge More Mustard with punched
out semi-circle to Old Olive and WW and punch
out semi-circles.  Adhere MM, OO and WW together,
adhere to textured Choc Chip and use mini glue
dot to secure button if wish to complete card as
llustrated in photo.  Adhere all layers to Close to
Cocoa cardstock leaving approximately 1/4" border
on the two sides and top of card.

Stamp sentiment "happy birthday" on bottom of 
Close to Cocoa with Versamark.  Sprinkle with white 
embossing powder.  Finally, use heat tool to emboss
