Kissing Butterflies

Did that title grab your attention? 

The kissing technique is what I taught at a couple of my recent workshops.  You do need a solid stamp for this technique to be effective.  Ink up your solid stamp with a light colour, then 'kiss' it with a patterned stamp which you first ink in a darker colour.  We used Wisteria Wonder with Elegant Eggplant on the card in front; and Pool Party and Island Indigo for the one in the back.  All new colours, except for Elegant Eggplant.

The rows of butterflies were stamped with the Butterfly Collection wheel.  I say stamped because I actually took the rubber off the wheel and backed it with foam mount to enable me to use it as a stamp - it self clings to a clear mount block in the usual way.

The accent butterflies are from Papillon Potpourri stamp set on page 90.  They were punched out with coordinating punches which you will find on page 183 - Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly.  The little floral butterfly in this set was the one we used for the kissed impression on these cards.

Thank you for visiting.  See you again soon...
