Top Tip Tuesday – Kiss Technique Part TWO. Who would have guessed that I was coming back with a second Kiss Technique Video? I know I didn’t, but I was having a think about what else you can do with the basic technique, and wondered what would happen if I ADDED ink rather than take it away.
I chose the trees from the Trees For Sale stamp set and one of the pine branches from the Cottage Wreath Stamp Set. I started by adding, not too much, Soft Succulent Ink to the Tree Stamps, then added the pine branches having added Evening Evergreen Ink. You need to be careful that you don’t ‘skid’ the images as you are adding wet to wet, there is that risk.
I hope you can see that you get wonderful added texture to your trees that you simply won’t get any other way. I die cut the trees using the Sale-a-Bration Tree Lot dies and tree stands (why fussy cut when you have the dies!?) To put the trees to use, I added them to a Basic White layer that I had run through the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder. I had added this to an Evening Evergreen layer before adding some Window Pane Check ribbon. It was then a simple case of adding the trees in a cluster, before adding some decoration with the Pearlized Enamel Effects to them. Just don’t then put your stamp case on top!
You only need to leave the Pearlized Enamel Effects for about an hour, less if you are in a warmer climate. I love the finished look for this card, even with the squished pearls that I had to rescue! What do you think? Will you be having a go at this technique?
