Here is my card I've made using the misti and the mirrow Image stamp in combination with the cute honey bears stamp set from the Ton 



It all started with a sketch. Sometimes I make a sketch of the card I have in my mind.
I was practising the mirrow stamping and made the sketch around the stamped bears.


Here are all my supllies:


Cardstock: light and dark brown and dark blue
Acetate
Spectrum noir markers
the ton stamp set honey bears
so suzy stamps: mirror image rubber
my sweet petunia misti mini
Paper pad from Joy.
Dies (ebay)
Speech balloons wood veneer


I started by stamping the cute bear on white card stock twice, once using the mirrow image stamp.
Then I colored both bears identically with my spectrum noir markers and cut them out.


The mirrow was a bit of a struggle. I didn't have an actual mirrow stamp so I made one using brown cardstock, nesti dies, corner punch and acetate.


Then I also used the mirrow image stamp to stamp the "hello" on the speech bubbles (they are from create a smile stamps).
In the joy craft paper pad was the perfect background for my card, it looks like a floor and wall.



I hope you have some more inspiration on how to use the misti and the mirrow image stamp.
Thanks for your comments and good luck in the draw.

Hugs, Henriette.

Very clever card! I love the bears and your pretty coloring! Also great idea you had at making the mirror with the dies. The Mirror Image stamp is a nice, big stamp! I didn't realize the size til I saw the pic of it in your mini MISTI!
