Kissing Technique: Creating Textured Patterns on Bold Stamps

Have fun kissing beautiful patterned stamps on to the bold frame stamp in Wild at Heart to create a new and different textured looks!  This technique is so fun and versatile you’ll want to practice lots of kissing.  The flowers and leaves in the coordinating Wild Flowers set are perfect for adding two step color to the frame, as well as create a matching accents for the inside of your card.  Go bold with several colored ink pads to create a gradient effect, or stick with one color for a more subtle look.  The tight weave of this patterned border in the Pretty Patterns 2 set is excellent for kissing, as it creates terrific almost fabric-like texture as well as picks up a lot of the frame’s floral detail. Be sure to watch the video for a bonus product of a similar card with these same techniques and sets in earth tones! (Kraft and Charcoal Brown)
