Mirror Image Stamping Card

I think these little fishes are too cute! This is my first project reversing a stamp with my new toy - a brayer. You ink up the little fishy from Very Punny, run the brayer over him very carefully, then run the brayer over your paper. You get a mirror image of the stamp. Then I stamped the original image to the right, added the sentiment from the same stamp, and watercolored them in with my Pastels & Blender Pens. I tore some Basic Black cardstock for the mat, then added Tempting Turquoise to that. I put a strip of Black and Pink Passion together, punched holes with my 1/16 punch and put Silver Brads through them. Then I put it all on some Lovely Lilac cardstock.
