Ink Techniques: Kiss Stamping

These polka dot daisies were made by "kissing" two inked stamps together before stamping.

Choose ink colours that blend well together and try them out on scrap paper to see if you like how they combine.

Ink a solid image stamp with a light colour of ink and a patterned stamp with a dark colour.

Place the solid stamp, rubber side up, on your work surface and press the patterned stamp onto it to transfer the pattern.

Then, stamp your project with the solid image stamp. You may need to huff on the stamp to moisten the inks.
