Quick post for Thursday night

I have had a few questions about the ATC (artist trading card) in my banner above. It was made for a technique swap that I am in, and I used 2 stamp sets to achieve that look. One of the stamps is the SU floral background stamp (also on the green bg piece but not as noticable), which was inked well and then pressed against the heart from the SU set called Forever in my Heart. Since the two stamps are pressed together, they call this the "kissing technique." The floral part adheres to the heart and then when you stamp you get a floral heart. Pretty cool, huh?!

I really liked it, but I had to order some new stamps from the catty to keep up with the technique swap this month--as I did not have anything current to use that was a big chunky stamp--like the heart. You need a solid stamp to be able to press them together for a nice look.

I really love the look of the "kissing" technique and the way you put the two images together is so pretty!
