This MIM challenge challenged us to “kiss” our inked up stamps with another uninked stamp to add a pattern to the surface to the stamp. I actually used an embossing folder instead of using another stamp to kiss my flower stamp with.
I even did some generational stamping. After I stamped a flower using the “kiss” technique, I would immediately press the same stamp on the embossing folder (without reinking or cleaning it) in the same stop I had pressed previously. This causes the stamp to pick up some of the ink that I left behind on the folder when I did my original “kiss” image. This created lighter flowers with a more pronounced pattern. Kind of a cool discovery!!! The flowers are from Altenew (painted flowers) and the sentiment is from PTI’s Think Big Favorites #12. I hope you enjoy!!
