Splitcoast Tutorial: Kissing with a Twist

I had a couple of tutorial slots this month that I wasn't able to fill, so guess who gets to fill them! I have a list of tutorials from our archives that need video updates, so I chose one from 2008 - it's called Kissing with a Twist, and it's a classic kissing technique where you twist a secondary stamp on a solid background for a unique texture.

I was able to get 3 cards from a single inking, so that's my addition to Beate's tutorial. I used a solid stamp from Impression Obsession (D6144 Solid Rectangle), a small floral stamp from Penny Black, silhouettes by Dina Wakley, and sentiments from Unity Stamp Co. 

Check the tutorial page for the video - you'll see me make all 3 of these backgrounds in just about 2 minutes! This second one was a bonus using the leftover ink on the stamp and an uninked floral stamp.

For this background I misted the stamp to lift the leftover ink. I love this silhouette - but I kind of want to put a clown hat on it.

Hope you're having a good week! I had some big changes of plans that have got my head very full, but we'll muddle through! Cheers!

Thanks for stopping by!
