A Kissing Challenge!

Bet that grabbed your attention.  I have been so busy and neglected posting for awhile.  Shame on me... so who could resist a kissing challenge?
Though not apparent, I kissed the kissed the Hero Arts stamp In the Garden (K5353) with the Hero Arts Dots and Flowers (S5213).  I inked the first stamp with distress ink Vintage Photo and pressed the other uninked stamp on top.  All embossing is done with clear embossing powder.  There is just a faint shadow of the pattern on this, but it is lovely (more noticeable to the right of the girl above the tall grass).  A pretty ribbon, some wonderful Nestabilities dies and pearls and I was delighted with the result.  I'm entering this in the Simon Says Stamp challenge at Lily Pad Cards Kissing Challenge.

I love the vintage look you have created, Arlene! This is a great stamp for kissing, a technique that I have trouble with. Thanks for the inspiration.
