Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing a technique that I like a lot but do not get to play with too often - stamp kissing!

Here, I inked up the solid balloon image from Workshops on the Go Kaleidoscope Cardmaking Kit and stamp on the Charming Cascades stamp.  Thus, the stars have absorbed some of the inks on the balloon, and when I stamped the balloon on paper, you see tiny little stars on the balloon.  I love this technique and I'm not sure why I'm not playing with it more often.  LOL.

I used the same cascade of star image in the Charming Cascades set as a background.  I inked it up in Pear and the background cardstock is also Pear.  This tone-on-tone technique never fails me - it always adds interest and is so easy to do!  Love this technique too!
