A Little Stamp-Kissing

Hello friends!

I have a little stamping fun with this cling stamp.
by Penny Black

This image is rather large and covers nearly the entire card front.

I started out stamping just the mittens first.

I worked the way from top with each color at a time.
Top to bottom: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough,  Dusty Concord, Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade.
May joy and happiness

I then stamped the strings with Ground Espresso.


I then took out this tree stamp (Flourishing Tree) and stamped it also in Ground Espresso
AND then stamped (kissed) the Mitten cling stamp.
That is why you see the pattern on the mittens. I did a quick clear-embossing.

Next comes the fun part...I painted the blue and let it dripped with a small amount of water droplet.
Once I was happy with it, let it dry and add white splatter all over.
may joy and happiness-003

I chose the sentiment from "Peaceful Season".
I hope you like my interpretation with this stamp and use of "Stamp-Kissing" Technique.

Love the added flourishes from the tree! I have seen the stamp kissing technique but never tried it. Love how yours turned out, added a neat element to the mittens.

How clever is that. Your kissing is perfect (I'm sure Dr. John thinks so, too). Anyway, back to the card, it adds so much liveliness and texture to the image. Of course, it doesn't hurt that you're so adept at multi-colored stamping.
