Just Us Girls Technique challenge - Kissing!






I'm back again for the second challenge at JUGS for the month of May!  As Guest Designer, I am having so much fun here.  This week, try the kissing technique on your cards.  Here is a link to see how that works. Kissing Technique.

You will need a solid stamp, but look at your stamps differently.  I chose one that had a little design on it and it worked out well!  It was fun to just pull out stamp sets and see what they would look like with different kissing technique and colors.  Just remember to use a lighter color first and then a darker one. 

Here is my card
 
 This is a stamp from Stampin Up called, Thanks a Latte.  I used Kraft ink on the cup and kissed it with coffee beans in Charcoal Brown ink. The CS is Sweet Mango and White. All paper and Ink are from Gina K.  On the background circle, I used the cups again and a script stamp with the kissing technique reversed.  So I stamped the cups onto the script stamp in a lighter color.
The buttons are made from mini pony beads that are melted in the oven and I added the heart with Stickles. 
Remember to go to all of the other designers to see how they have done the challenge.
Ok, Now it is your turn!  Lets see what you find to Kiss!
