Kissing 101


The challenge this month on the Hero Arts blog features the "kissing" technique. You need to use stamps with a solid surface so the design that you "kiss" will show through.

For this card, I inked up Dancing With Flowers with a shadow ink and then inked up the Raindrop Background with Frayed Burlap distress ink and kissed the two stamps together. The sentiment was made from two phrases that I cut apart to create a new one.

I was pleased with the kissing result and hope to try this again with different background stamps.

And here's a sneak peek of some bird digis that Tiffany Doodles will have in the store starting on February 18th.

All the bird digis will be part of the "Buy 5, receive 10% off" sale going on through the end of February.

I'll be featuring a card made with one of the new birds tomorrow. Hope to see you then! Thanks for stopping by today...
