Hi everyone! I just tried my "new" find from Goodwill...it's a Mirror Image Stamp. I could use some tips on how to make the image darker ( I used Memento Tuxedo Black) because I lost a lot of the details of the little girl and she looks "pale" compared to stamping her normal.

Trudi, what a sweet image. I had one of those mirror image stamps for a while and had trouble getting a clear, clean and dark image, too. Mainly used it to make reflections in the water since they didn't have to be perfect. Maybe someone else can provide some guidance?

For this challenge I choose cardstock that had polka dots and then I fussy cut two images of the seed packets to go with my card. I hope this satisfy's the challenge? This was fun, I also made it into a stair step card.

Trudi, that is great! I don't have one of those stamps. When I did my reverse, I used the base of my mini Misti. Then just laid card over the top. I did it twice and it was still light, so I went over the lines with a fine line black pen.

Barry, that is a great step card! I'm enjoying these fun images.

Trudi, I love your mini-chorus of carolers - darling! Mine was light too so I went over it with a fine tip marker also.

Barry, another adorable card! Where are these images/paper from? So cute!

Hi Elaine, i got the stamps and images from a card maker's magazine either this year or last. The stamped images are really small so I stamp them and then enlarge them on my printer, color them and then (my absolute favorite) fussy cut them out. I know I am weird but I love to fussy cut sooooo much.

Thanks Barry - they are cute as can be!

And speaking of this general topic, does anyone have a Cut & Scan?

Barry, love that polka dotted background. And not one but TWO servings of Marrow.

Elaine, I don't know what a cut and scan is. So... nope.
