Just Kissing

Stamp kissing is an interesting, usually subtle, technique where you use a simple negative type stamp and stamp another onto it (while both are wet) before putting it to paper.

Here I have used a tree with music 'kissed' onto it.  Inks are 3 shades of yellow orange, kissed with dark green; the combination makes it's own colour.  Click on the detail for a close-up.

Well done Carol - this is a great example of 'kissing' and a wonderful card to boot.

Love the way you made your tree into a panel. It goes very nicely with the font in the sentiment.

SO much better than mine, but you've given me an idea because I have a similar reverse tree stamp that I didn't realise would work so well. Ooh. More crafting is in order I think! Thank you!
