How About I Show You My Kissing Technique?

Today I want to share two of the new releases at Rubbernecker Stamps with you and also take you back to a technique from "long ago." It's called the Kissing Technique! No lip locks here, just a fun, easy technique that anyone can do.

You can use any inks for this technique: dye, chalk, pigment, distress, shadow. You will need two ink colors.

One way to do it:
1. Ink up your solid image stamp with your lighter color.
2. Ink up your second image with a darker ink.
3. "Kiss" the two surfaces together.
4. Stamp the solid image stamp on paper.

The way I did it in my sample (more subtle) - one inked (solid) and one uninked (detail) image:
1. Ink up your solid image stamp.
2. Without inking your detailed image, stamp this stamp on your inked stamp ("Kissing")
3. Stamp the solid image on paper. Some of the area that previously was inked will have the ink removed with the uninked image.

I used two images from Rubbernecker Stamps for my technique, and did one inked stamp (Believe Collage) and one uninked stamp (Paint Splattered Screen). The result is a more subtle look than if both stamps were inked. If you look closely you can see the screen design in the letters and flowers.

This is a technique from "long ago," but I had never tried it! Super easy and a very cool look.  There is a whole gallery on Splitcoast to see other kissing ideas too. Click here.

I want to say a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my lovely mom today!
She loves to stamp too!

Thanks for stopping by today!
