The Kissing Technique

How romantic, and just in time for Valentine's Day...the "kissing technique"! I had never heard of this stamping technique before so I just had togive it a try. This is the technique that is being promoted/required on the SweetStamps monthly challenge. It is really easy: just ink up a solid stamp with a light color ink and another patterned stamp with a darker ink, "kiss" that onto the solid stamp and then stamp that one on your paper. I did it with the lamp shade, with a lime green base color and a dark aqua for the pattern. I love how it makes the lamp shade look like fabric.

My ingredients
Stamp set: Close to My Heart "I Chairish You"
Background stamp: Our Daily Bread Designs "Vine Background"
Embossing folder: Sizzix "Snow Flowers"
Inks: Stampabilities "Orange", studio G "Dark Turquoise" & "Lime"
Cardstock...all from my stash

Challenges: - monthly "Kissing Technique"

This is so neat...Love the color combo and that embossing on your base is so beautiful. Love it! So delighted you shared your artwork with us at Word Art Wednesday. Want to leave you with a verse coming from 1 John 5:4 which says, "For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith." Have a blessed week!
