Kissing time


Challenge #6 at A Blog Named Hero is to use the kissing technique on your card. If you're not familiar with stamp kissing, Shari Carroll shares a great video tutorial on this fun technique here.


For my card, I inked up In the Garden with Peeled Paint distress ink, then inked up Lace Background with Wet Cement Mid Tone shadow ink and "kissed" them together. I love the textural feel of the solid area of the stamp.

I tied a bit of hand dyed seam binding and added a pearl as a finishing touch. The sentiment is from Hero Arts' Everyday Sayings.

Grab your solid surface stamps and give stamp kissing a try. The deadline for the challenge is Tuesday, June 26th.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

  17. I really love that the kissing you've done here isn't super 'crisp' it gives an amazing texture to the solid background area!

    Thank you so much for playing along with our challenge!~
