Make It Monday #57: Colored Kissing

This weeks MIM is colored kissing by Heather Nichols.  A fantastic technique because the results are so interesting.  For me I had quite a time lining up my kissed stamps over the inital stamp.  So there a were a lot of redos, oh well lots of practice.  I chose to use the clouds from Up Up & Away for this technique. I stamped the clouds with Fresh Snow Ink on a Spring Rain card base and then kissed my stamps with Background Basics: Circles in Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise and Pure Poppy.



All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Spring Rain, Green Leaf
Stamps: Up Up & Away, Up Up & Away Sentiments, Background Basics: Circles
Ink: Fresh Snow, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, Summer Sunrise (PRI), Memento (Tsukineko)
Dies: Up Up & Away
other: Assorted Copics, foam dots, grass die cut (compliments of Joyce)

One of my fave sets of all time. We have lots of hot air balloons in the sky near where I live, and they look just like yours. I think those clouds were my very first PTI die. Love them with the background circles. I thought I recognized that grass--so professionally punched. Such a great card.
