Kissing Technique Challenge at Lily Pad Cards!

Hey there, everyone!

Happy Friday! We've got a brand new challenge over at Lily Pad Cards, and it's sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!




The challenge this time is all about kissing! You know. . . . .that fun technique that gives such a cool effect! I love this technique and don't do it often enough, so let's get right to the card I created.


I used the pretty cling stamp from Hero Arts called, Flower Bird Garden, inked it with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, then kissed it with the Hero Arts Music Background, which was inked with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. Then I stamped it on my paper and colored in the flowers and birds with markers.

I popped the panel onto a piece of textured, yellow cardstock, after adding the ribbon and sentiment tag.

So, what are ya waiting for?! Head on over to the pond to check out all the details of the challenge, and to see the wonderful cards from the rest of the DT. It's such a fun technique, I know you'll all want to play along!

Have a fun weekend! Thanks for coming by today - I so appreciate it!

Hugs and "KISSES!" (hee, hee!) :)
