Parrot Times Two

At Frilly and Funkie the challenge was an inspiration one based on this picture of the parrot. The Stampotique Designers challenge was twin images, to use the same image twice on our piece.
My parrot isn't an elegant parrot in flight; he seems more to be in need of a little more self esteem. He is, however, a parrot (Stampotique). He seems to be looking at his refelection. To create his reflection, I stamped him on a flat piece of rubber and then stamped the new image on my paper. Then, using the stamp positioner, I stamped him again on the paper. I colored the parrots using Prisma pencils and gamsol. I used glimmer mist sprays to color the two halves of the image oval. To frame the image I used a Spellbinders oval. The front of the base card was dry embossed using a Sizzix folder. The sentiment, which I love, is from Stampotique designs.

Very cool technique with the mirror image, Barbara! And I think your parrot is very cute. That definitely is a wonderful sentiment which goes perfectly with your image. Wonderful take on the photo inspiration challenge. So great to have you joining in the fun with us this fortnight at Frilly and Funkie.
