Mirror Daisies

Mod Squad: 3’s Company

I had an idea of mirroring a stamp by using my waterproof gold sticker paper. I knew ink just would not stick on it (from experience). I put a piece of the gold sticker paper gold side up in my misti and stamped the daisy bouquet in black. Opened the misti and placed a piece of plain copy paper and pressed with my bare hand to transfer the image. IT WORKED! I masked the first impression with a fussy cut stamped image then stamped the image right on the copy paper for second set of flowers. Next I stamped the image one more time on some layering weight cs. This I fussy cut and cut each flower apart, glued down for another bouquet. Colored the stems with copic and added the Mini Prills. The gold wiped clean with a baby wipe and is ready for the next time I get inspired to mirror a stamped image. Trimmed the copy paper to layer on a white cs base. This is one of my all time favorites.

  1. This is really beautiful and I admire how you created it. Genius at work to use the gold sticker paper to make a mirror image. I have a small gelli plate pad and have used this for mirror stamping. It worked really well.

  2. Wow, you are so very creative and fussy cut those flowers perfectly. I would not have know they were cut without reading your description. Love It!

  3. Your mirror stamping came out so clear. I’ve tried this with a plain rubber sheet, and the results were hit or miss. (Sometimes the image was perfect, and sometimes I needed to fill in areas with a marker.) I’ll have to try it with glossy paper or acetate. (I’m not sure I have sticker paper.)

  4. Well my friend this is one of my favorites too and I’m thrilled to be the recipient. I was wondering how you did the flowers. I might have some glossy gold CS that might work for this technique.
