ABC Blog Hop- K

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter K. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their K element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Marie then you're on the right track!

Today I am sharing how to Kiss- with inks and stamps!

Here is a great video from Close To My heart showing how the Kissing Technique works.

I inked up the flower from the Flowers For Mum stamp set in Canary, and then "kissed" the swirls from the Hello Wonderful doily with Cranberry ink directly onto the inked stamp, then pushed this down onto the paper. It gave a fun swirled look on the flower petals.

Here is the finished card with some kissed flowers that I fussy cut! These two step flowers are beautiful on their own, but the kissing technique just adds extra interest and allows you to be creative.

Your next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop is Darlys of Crafty Happy.
