The February challenge over at Hero Arts included the technique of "Kissing" ~ this is a fun technique but sometimes it is not easy to get a good image.... I played around with several stamps before finally getting something I was happy with....
I used Poppy background ( lots of inky spaces) and kissed it with Magical background. I found that if I used a light colour ink on the Poppy stamp and a darker one on the Magical background I got a good look.
I used Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue ink to ink the Poppy stamp very well. I then inked up Magical Background in Mediterranean Blue and kissed the two.... Got a reasonable result ( on my second try) Added some ribbon and a little HA sentiment and made a lovely simple card.
Now I did mention that it took 2 goes to get a good image.... Here's what I did with the first image....
It didn't quite stamp all the way at the bottom, so I cut out a little tag and where the non-stamped bit was, added a sentiment.
Off to watch the last of the Oscars.... see Natalie Portman won the best actress... who will get the best actor?????????????
