More kissing...

I'm sharing another card using the kissing technique with two stamps that were given to me by a stamping pal. I love Hero Arts silhouette stamps and In the Garden is a reverse silhouette with the perfect surface for "kissing".

I inked up the stamp with a shadow ink, then inked up Lace Background with a chalk ink, kissed them together and then stamped the image on white cardstock. I tried it with different color combos and I liked the pinks the best.
I used the apron lace border punch and some dyed seam binding and topped it off with a rose that was colored with Copic refills. The sentiment was stamped on the side and embossed with white detail embossing powder.

Hope you'll try the kissing technique. It gives solid surface stamps a bit of a textured look and it's fun to experiment with different stamp combinations.

Stamps: All Hero Arts: In the Garden, Lace Background, Large Canvas Stripes, 
Ink: Hero Arts shadow inks, Hero Arts chalk ink, Versamark, Copic refill (R81)
Cardstock: Paper bag kraft, Papertrey Ink
Other: Fiskars border punch, white detail embossing powder, dyed seam binding, paper rose, pop dots

And the countdown to our daughter's wedding is....42 days! Yikes! My sister and I are making these ribbon roses to attach to the favor bags. Eighty doesn't seem like a monumental task, but wrapping the wire is doing a number on my fingers!


Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments, too. Have an awesome weekend!

  1. Donna your "kissing" technique is absolutely perfect. So crisp and clean. The ribbon roses are beautiful. I know what you mean about working with the wire. Hopefully you can spread out the "twisting" over a few days. Have a great weekend.
