Kiss Technique

It's Technique Tuesday and we're going to talk about kissing today. NO, not that kind of kissing, the stamping kind of kissing.

Kissing Technique is where you take a solid image stamp. In this case the butterfly from the For All You Do stamp set. Ink up the stamp. Take a smaller another stamp, and here I'm using the small flower from the same set. Now "kiss" the two - or stamp the flower on to the butterfly. Then stamp the flower on scratch paper to remove the ink that you kissed off. Think of it as when you kiss your hubby after you've put on fresh lipstick and he has to wipe off the transferred lipstick. Same idea.

Now on to our card ~
