Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #58

It's a technique challenge this week at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges.  Gail chose the Reflection Technique for us and I must say I've never before done this one.  I decided not to add any color to it other than the black and white.  It's another birthday card as I can't seem to keep them on hand.  Lots of birthdays here where I live.

The card base is Basic Black.  Then, I added a layer of Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper.  Onto the layer of Whisper White I stamped the train image from the Traveler stamp set and the clouds and sentiment from the Sky is the Limit stamp set.  What I discovered when I went to do the reflection is that I didn't have any window sheets so I used a piece of vellum.  It did okay but the image is not quite as dark as I wished.  I added some silver sequins from the Silver Sequin Trim and added them to the upper and lower part of the card to get another reflection.

Now it's your turn!  We'd love to see how this great sketch inspired your next project.  This challenge closes on Monday, March 14th at 1:00 p.m. Central Time.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. I'm just getting around to taking a closer look at all the DT cards up close. This is gorgeous! I love the black and white only. It's my favorite to create with. Your 'reflection' is subtle and I like it. It works perfectly in this layout. Just a great card Marsha!

    1. Thanks, Libby! I love black and white and my favorite, too.
