Reverse Stamping

The challenge in one of my on line groups was to do reverse stamping using plastic coated freezer paper.  I have the freezer paper that is paper on one side and the other side is slick like wax paper, so I think that's what they meant.  I took the slick side of the paper and stamped my stamp onto it using Memento black ink, the person posting the challenge used Stazon but I new I would be coloring with markers so I tried dye ink instead, I thought it did a pretty good job, I turned my stamped image over and placed it gently on my paper, then rubbed and rubbed with my fingers all over the image to get a good stamp. Next you stamp your original stamp directly to your paper.  They suggested stamping the next one after first stamping off on another sheet of paper first, but I tried it both ways on a scrap paper and thought it looked ok to do a full stamp on it.  I noticed most of the ones who have posted already did theirs side by side but I thought it might look neat to do them on each corners.

The one on the top right is the reversed stamp image.

oh wow! that turned out gorgeous Connie! I've not heard of using freezer paper to do the reverse. We used to use a flat red rubber stamp block. Now you have me curious and wanting to try this! lol Beautiful creating!

Connie, I'm amazed every time I visit you. Your card is gorgeous and professional looking. And putting the images in opposite corners was very smart.
