Dirty Kissing Technique

My initial plan was to use the Tim Holtz 'Reflections' stamps with the solid pear stamp from Aspects Of Design and stamp with the 'Kissing Technique'. But after some test stamping I decided against it, the text did not show enough and I think I might need some other pigment ink. I will try it again :)

Anyway I found in my stash a great background stamp from Hero Arts - Raindrop Background (S5101) that worked fine for what I was trying to achieve. I inked the pear stamp with Versa Color Bamboo (69) and the Raindrop Background with Brilliance Dew Drop Coffee Bean (BD-54). Then I 'kissed' the pear stamp on the Raindrop stamp and then immidiately stamped the pear on a piece of card stock. I then used clear embossing powder to enhance the colours.

There are all sorts of kissing techniques ~smile~ here is a great video tutorial from the Stamp Goddess.

Papermania blank card and envelope 5" x 7" Kraft
