The third technique taught on the Bonus Day (yes, I skipped technique two which was paper piecing) was Mirror Stamping.
To create a reverse image, the stamp is inked and pressed onto the back flat side of a larger clear stamp mounted on a stamp press. This is then stamped onto the desired paper. Touch-ups can be done with a black marker.
A regular impression of the same image is made to another piece of paper and these are both cut out. A black marker is used to color the edges of the cut paper to get rid of the white.
I gave my fish a blue dot background to serve as water with bubbles and wavy strips of XXX and OOO paper. The fish were mounted on foam tape under the bodies with all the fins glued down to the background.
They each got a clear bubble for the eye and 'she' got lipstick added with a marker.
I stamped the sentiment with a 'random words' set.
