On to the challenge at Lily Pad Cards. This month our Simon Says Stamp sponsored challenge is all about using the Kissing Technique. I love the great texture that you can achieve by "kissing" one stamp with another before hitting the paper with it. I hope you will check out the gorgeous work the Design Team has on display at Lily Pad Cards and join us for another fabulous challenge!
For my card I used a new stamp and an old stamp. And I embellished....yep that's right, I used flowers, buttons and die cuts on one card. I stopped short of adding bling too, didn't want to go completely crazy.
Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us
from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens.
I channeled my inner Tiffany and Lin to come up with a feminine design to use the Kiss technique. I have no idea when or where I got the bird stamp, it has no name on it and it's been rattled around in my stamp stash for years. Because it has a large solid area it's perfect for adding texture, in this case I used Hero Arts Friend Definition to kiss the ink off of the bird before stamping. For the background I inked the background stamp with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and kissed it with the Envelope Pattern inked with Stormy Sky Distress ink.
