Lets combine colors!

Hello Everyone,

It has been raining here in San Diego off and on for the last few weeks, so Laura one of our teachers here at The Stamp Addict has been spending a lot of time in her craft room creating some wonderful things.  Today we wanted to share one of her cards with you. 


She used a light pink paper as the card base, and a purple matt cut to 5 1/4" x 4.  On the purple she stamped Leafy Background (E1715) in Adirondack's Pigment Shell Pink Ink.  Next she got out a sheet of Neenah Cream and the Adirondack Pigment Eggplant ink and her Memory Box Eiffel Tower (D1723) Stamp.  She inked the Leafy Background with the shell pink again.  Then inked the Eiffel Tower in the Eggplant then stamped the Eiffel Tower on to the Leafy Background stamp.  She wiped off the Eiffel Tower stamp to stop cross contamination in her ink pads then repeated until she had 4 parts of the Eiffel Tower stamp stamped into the Shell pink on the Leafy Background stamp.   Next she stamped the Leafy Background stamp on the Neenah Cream.  (This technique is commonly known as the "kissing technique" as you kiss two stamps together.)  She then cut out the stamped image leaving a small boarder.  She then cleaned both stamped and repeated the "Kissing Technique" using the opposit colors, (Eggplant on Leafy Background and Shell Pink on Eiffel Tower) and cut that out leaving the same boarder as the first one.  She then attached the Eggplant stamped image, and used foam tape to "pop" up the shell pink stamped image. 

Try the technique with two of your favorite Memory Box stamps and post them on the Memory Box Facebook page so we can see what you come up with!
