Kissing Technique!

Morning everybody,

I have couple of cards to share for A Blog Named Hero Kissing Technique Challenge.

It is always a hit and miss for me using this technique. I either don't use contrasting colours or not the right stamps for it. After a few attempts, I got it. I love the Large Fabric Background stamp. My favourite from Hero Arts. Instead of using another large background stamp to kiss, I used Dictionary Greetings smaller text stamp to kiss. The result came out nice.
Here are the cards.

I stamped a 5.50 x 4.25 white panel using kissing technique. Then I decided to cut the panel into two and make two cards. One having a larger stamped area and the other just a strip. I wanted to see which one makes more impact.

Cardstock: Stampers Select White from Papertrey Ink
Stamp Sets: Large Fabric Background, Dictionary greetings, Many Birthday Messages and Blossom Art from Hero Arts
Inks: Night Chalk Ink and Bubblegum Midtone Shadow Ink from Hero Arts. Archival Jet Black Ink
Accessories; Ink Pearls

That big flower is so beautiful right? I did not have a pink cardstock to match the Bubblegum pink ink from Hero Arts. So I rubbed the Bubblegum Hero Arts Ink on a white cardstock and stamped the flower, cut it out. Then I used copic sketch of a darker shade to colour some area.

I could not decide and  ended up liking both the cards. Which one do you like?
Gorgeous Sunday today! I have a few chores to complete.

Before I go, I am excited to tell you that this is my 1000th post on my blog. Wow! How cool is that? I didn't even know that I had made so many post lol! Excited about the milestone post Yay!

both are so stunning Gayatri. The colour is incredible. I think I like the second one, with the smaller strip of the colour.
