This week's challenge is an old technique called "Kissing." In fact, it was the first technique challenge ever on Splitcoast. (3/3/05) You can see the challenge here.
Kissing Definition: Ink up a background stamp with a dark color and leave it face up on your worktable. You will then need a bold stamp. There are two ways to do this. You can leave the bold stamp uninked or you can ink the bold stamp in a lighter coordinating color. Then you are going to use the BG stamp as your "ink pad" and then stamp on the cardstock as desired. If the pattern doesn't show well, consider using a more defined BG stamp, a darker color ink, or a bold stamp that is larger.
Just for fun: Since this is our 100th CAS challenge, tell us what your favorite CAS challenge has been so far when you link back to this thread!
It's also great to add the keyword: CAS so that you're in two galleries.
Leave some love for our tremendous & devoted design team. Here are some samples to help you get started:

Can you believe it is CAS100? Wow. I love CAS and recieve such inspiration from the challenges. My favorite CAS challenge of this year is CAS90 GINGHAM AND CHECKS.Here is my CAS Guest Designer card for today's challenge.
Thanks for another great challenge and the chance (push) to revisit an old technique. I am not sure I have a favorite CAS challenge, just the fact that I am challenged to make something clean and simple (most of the time).
Location: CAS. Embellished. It's all good. Happy stamping!

Great question! Here's an alternative.
Ink up your bold stamp and set it on your table face up. Then use a lined designed stamp and press on the inked bold stamp to form a design. This is reverse of the original kissing because it is removing ink.
You also asked what was a favorite CAS challenge. For me it was CAS71: Things that Fly. I loved this challenge because I used one of all-time favorite stampsets: Wonderful Wings and I did in vellum. Loved it!
Thanks for looking.
