Just Us Girls #240 - Technique

Sue V. is our hostess this week at Just Us Girls with a fun technique challenge called Kissing.   I have added a quick video for you, if you haven't tried this before.

Here's my card

I used two coordinating stamps sets from PTI called Delightful Dahlia & Delightful Dahlia Additions.  The Delightful Dahlia Additions stamps are solid stamps and they work in a three step process.  Instead of stamping all three separately onto the paper, I inked the first stamp with Memento Cantaloupe ink, then inked the second stamp with Memento Tangelo ink and "kissed" it to the first stamp.  I inked the third stamp with Memento Lady Bug ink and "kissed" it to the first stamp.  I huffed over the stamp to reactivate any dried ink and then stamped.  It gave me this wonderful mottled color.  I used the Delightful Dahlia set which is a line stamp and stamped the top with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I followed the same process to do the leaves using Memento Pistachio & Bamboo Leaves ink.  The patterned paper is from Gina K. Designs Spring Parade pack.  I cut a circle using Lil' Inkers Stitched Circles, stamped the greeting using GKD Black Onyx ink, attached the leaves and popped up the flowers.  I, also, added three MME enamel dots.
