Kissing- A new Technique For Me

Click to enlarge and get a better view of the Kissing Technique.
I learned a new technique (for me) yesterday called "Kissing"! This stamp is the same one that I used on the card below, but I "Kissed" it. Isn't it cool? I learned this technique from Gina at Gina Designs and you might enjoying watching her video.

I first stamped the Nature and Floral stamp (shown below for this weeks sale) with SU Certain Celery Ink and then I stamp over the green ink with a small patterned stamp inked in Versafine Black (I will have for sale next Monday). I then huffed the stamp and stamped it on Neenah White Cardstock. This is the effect I got. I just love it.

I used the Sublime Stripped paper shown before and the Label One die from Spellbinders which I will be featuring next Monday. I wanted a hint of black to accent the floral, so I used Sharon's trick and sponged my image with the Versafine Black Ink while still in the die to give the crisp, white border. Pretty neat huh?

If you need pretty ribbons, be sure to stop over at Sharon's site. She has some beautiful ribbon she is selling!! Just click on the tab at the top that says Ribbon For Sale.

Saw this on SCS, but wondered how you did part of it. Great card! Love the colors, and with the sponging, it really made it pop! Love the brads too!
