Just Us Girls #240 - Technique Challenge

Hi everyone!  The challenge over at Just Us Girls this week is a technique challenge.  Sue V. is the hostess and she chose the Kissing Technique.  I love this technique and I got to use some perfect stamps for this technique.
 
When you do this technique, you want to use a stamp that has a lot of surface area.  I went looking through my stamps and found this retired one from SU.  I stamped the flower in Memento Luxe ink (I found that pigment inks worked best for this technique) and then "kissed" it with Tim Holtz's Reflections stamp.  It left the words imprinted the correct way (not backwards) on the image.  Then I stamped it on the paper and fussy cut it out.  The rest of the card is pretty self-explanatory.
 
The design team did an amazing job with technique.  You can check them out at these blogs.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
