Less is More Challenge #259: kissing technique
For my card I used the most solid stamp I have (or one of the few), it's a brush stroke from Marianne design (Eline's brush) very new, came out a few weeks ago.
I inked it up with pigment ink as they stamp better than Distress inks, also they stay wet a bit longer, useful for this technique.
this last version is one of 4, I started with purple on purple, liked it, but thought it to be too subtle, so I switched to black...way too overpowering for me..so instead of adding a color I stamped it with a dry stamp and took color away, almost looks like white on purple, like that!
for the kissing stamp I used Hero Arts la letter a woodmounted stamp. The words are now mirrored/backwards, but I'm not bothered, couldn't read them the right way up anyway. Just a bit weird
they lean to the left, even for a leftie like me ;-)
For the sentiment I used an Uniko stamp from All occasion sentiments #6 and I stamped it in Versafine black onyx.
I trimmed the panel as I stamped the sentiment a bit slanted ;-)
Originally I started out with a one layer in mind, but as I messed up a few I used their backs as well to practice, infact on the back of this final piece there's a pratice one as well...Love how paper has two sides lol.
Mounted the panel with foamtape.
