Tutorial – Kissing
No mistletoe or breath mints are required for this week’s technique of “Kissing.”
The kissing technique is used with a solid stamp which will be used as the base, and a patterned stamp that will “kiss” its pattern into place.
So what I did was ink the solid stamp with yellow on top and blue on the bottom, and then inked the striped stamp with red. After they were both inked, I held them together so the red stripes transferred onto the blue base. (Note – I actually held them in my hands to do this, but couldn’t take a picture that way.) Be careful to just touch them and separate straight apart from each other, not rubbing or smearing them together.
The result is a candle with clean red stripes that extend no further than the candle itself.
Here’s another example usinga background stamp and a monogram stamp.
This time I didn’t ink the solid stamp at all. I inked the background stamp only and “kissed” the two stamps together.
Go see what you’ve been missing.
