We're getting Reflective

Hello friends!
It is the 15th so time for another Copic Creations Challenge (number 33)! Please visit the blog for all the details and to see the great samples made by Mary's team. Our challenge (and yours) is to color an image with copics and color a reflected image. The teams interpretations are very different so the challenge is more open than you might first think. My stamp is from Rubbernecker. Who doesn't love the scenes that Kittie747 makes?! When she made one with this sailboat I HAD to have it! It hasn't seen ink very often, but was perfect for making a reflected image.
Knowing I wanted to show a reflection, I stamped the image high up on white Neenah classic paper. I colored the image in my normal way. I'm so sorry but I don't have the colors written down for this one. Then I used my cloud template for the sky. Finally, I had to get started on the reflection.
I used the links to Maryanne's tutorial on reflections that Mary had sent us. I'm sure they're linked in the Copic Creatins Blog post. Maryanne tells how to make a blurry image below for the reflection. I did that and then went over the 'water' with by blues, going right over my images as well. Finally, I did some blurry outlines in black marker.
I wasn't crazy about it so I added the ribbon to mask it a bit! After I went away from the card awhile and came back to it, I didn't think it was too bad! :)
Hope you like it and will join in the challenge! There is a great prize being given by Suzanne Dean! You'll want to check it out!
Have a great day!
Hugs, Cheryl
