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.
