Third card

This is the third card from my Hero Arts inspiration. They are having a challenge to use the kissing technique so I used a stamp I already had of theirs and one of the news ones (the "hello" writing background). I stamped the poppy stamp in baja breeze and then the hello stamp in navy ink. I stamped the hello stamp onto the already inked poppy stamp then stamped the poppy stamp onto the white cardstock. That is the kissing technique. I had to giggle though, because it is one stamp stamped onto another the second stamp is backwards when done. So the words are backwards! I don't think you would be reading them on this type of flower anyway but it says things like thinking of you etc.

If you look close you can see sort of stripes on the lines in the poppy of where the navy ink ran across the baja color, it made stripes! I think that is kinda funky and cool :) I love this card, the designer paper and the colors are my favorite. The paper is from Stampin Up (of course, makes my life easy to use their stuff since everything matches and I don't have to hunt down the right shade from a store). Oh and the ribbon is from Martha Stewart, I picked it up when she first put out her line of products at Michael's and it matches baja breeze so well! Have a great day :)

I like this card. It looks like CA poppies blowing in the wind when you are driving out towards the desert in the middle of spring.
