Simple Kissed Flowers
I must be stamping virgin. I've never kissed!
At least I don't think I've ever done the kissing technique for stamping. It is the technique for this week's Clean and Simple cards at Splitcoast Stampers. Pals Paper Arts challenge is to use the new Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze and Perfect Plum.
The two stamps I kissed are large flower stamps from two different Stampin' Up sets. I inked up the open flower design in Plum and inked the solid flower from Petal Pizzazz in Baja, press together and Voila!
For the background flower, I had to cheat a little to get it large enough to show. After stamping in Perfect Plum and 'kissing' with a polka dot stamp, I cut out the image and then snipped each petal separately.
I then adhered the petals to another circle of cardstock so a slightly larger flower would peek out the back of the top flower.
A pearl and a sentiment wrap up this very simple card.
