Default Reverse kissing?

Has anyone tried reverse kissing with any success? I tried using the Paisley BG stamp, Big Blossom and eggplant classic ink but the image comes out really light. Is using craft ink the secret? I'm really limited as far as craft inks go. Any hints would be appreciated!!

I have successfully used classic ink with exactly those stamps you mentioned. I inked up my paisley with my brayer to make sure I got good ink coverage, then laid the paisley face up on my table and stamped my Big Blossom onto the paisley, pressing quite firmly in all areas of the blossom, but being careful not to let the blossom "slide" around on the paisley. You can see my sample here
What type of problems are you having?

Kissing is where you ink up your stamp and then use another stamp to "lift off" ink. Reverse kissing is where you don't ink up your main stamp, but instead put ink on the image you want to impress onto your main stamp. Confused yet? lol

I love your sample, but I don't want to cut mine out. I want to use it as a background but there's not enough contrast between the kissed part and they unkissed part. I'll keep working at it.

You know what regular kissing is, right? Where you take the stamp you want to use and press it onto an inked background stamp to get texture on it and then you stamp the card stock? Well, in reverse kissing you stamp the background stamp on the cardstock which leaves an impression of the background stamp but with the other stamped image showing up also only lighter. Clear as mud?!?

Default Reverse Kissing

I was able to do the technique, but I too found that the brayer helped with this technique.

This technique was featured in the Jan. SS.

No, it's super simple...it's harder to explain than it is to do!

I thought I had this figured out until this thread.

Kissing is inking up a sold stamp with a light ink. Then inking up a background stamp (or small detail stamp) in darker ink and pressing the inked solid stamp to the background stamp (or detail stamp to the solid stamp) to pick up the darker image. Then stamping the solid stamp to the card stock.

Reverse Kissing would be to ink a background or texture stamp and stamp the surface with a solid stamp, either inked or uninked onto the surface of the background stamp and stamp the background stamp onto the card stock.

One process gives you an image that has been kissed, while the other gives you a background that has been kissed. At least that's what I always thought, but it may be I'm wrong.

I haven't done either for a while, but as I recall, it helped to have really juicy ink pads and "huffing" on the stamps to ensure wet ink.

Something that may help, is to ink up the stamp first with Versamark, then add your colour over the top? I find that helps coloured dye inks to stick to stamps.
The 'reverse kissing' can also be basically a way of flipping your image, so it faces the opposite way to what the original one would. Effectively, instead of inking your stamp and stamping onto cardstock, you stamp it onto a larger stamp, then use that to stamp onto your cardstock. You can do it onto a solid background 'shadow' type stamp, or onto a patterned one, depending what effect you are after. If you search You Tube for 'mirror stamping' you will find some great videos on doing this.
