The Other Side of a Kiss

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello Portal Peeps.  Gail here today.   For my inspiration piece for the current Face On challenge I used the kissing technique.  This is where you stamp one stamp onto another inked stamp to remove some of the ink and give a subtle pattern.
 I stamped and masked the Geisha, inked the large rectangle Shadow Frame with pink distress oxide ink, pressed the Bamboo stamp into it, then stamped the Shadow Frame over the masked Geisha image.  This gives that ghosty bamboo look.  Then I stamped the Carmen's Veranda Quiet Chaos Madness sentiment.

 I was kissing with the Bamboo stamp from the Asian set and decided not to waste an inked stamp!!
For this second card I stamped and masked the Geisha again and then stamped the pink distress oxide inked Bamboo.  She looks so thoughtful.  I thought this would maybe make a good thinking of you or even a sympathy card.
Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget to join the fun with your stamped projects featuring a human face for your chance to win Lost Coast Design $$$$.
