I love trying to take photos of reflective surfaces and seeing this inspiration photo reminded me that I’d been meaning to try this as a way of putting 2 identical images on a card.

This is the card I made. Since our local pond is frozen over I tried a Winter scene for a Christmas card with frozen water reflecting. I’m not sure if I’ve captured it! I designed the card using Craft Artist, adding the Sylvia Zet Silver Fairy and inverting it to make the reflection. I coloured the image using Promarkers and then highlighted the image, water and snow using pearlescent ink.

I also used pearlescent ink dabbed round the edges of the card. I took another photo at an angle to give an idea of the effect the ink gives!
