This is the card I made for my demonstration at our SCS gathering last weekend. I promised to give the directions for the technique too. Here's how you do it.....
Take any BOLD stamp
Any line or small stamp (This is the tool stamp)
Ink up the Bold stamp in ANY ink pad. Take the tool stamp and kiss it to the inked bold stamp and give it a twist...repeat twist if desired. Give the bold stamp a huff of hot air and stamp onto cardstock. Repeat stamping if desired. If this isn't clear yet....email me personally with your questions.

The background done behind the lovely lilac cardstock was done using the block image from "All Natural" and inking the stamp with the spectrum pad and just stamping continuously around the edges of the folded card without re-inking the stamp too much. I think I got four or five stampings out of one inking for that background. The lighter images of the "kissing" flower image was done by just repeat stamping of the flower and not re-inking it. You can get a image everytime like the first image of the "Kissing" just by cleaning off the stamp, then re-inking it and doing the kiss and twist again. You must clean off the stamp before redoing the kissing technique and stamping or you will end up with a very mudding looking image and it is disappointing when that happens. Thanks for all the wonderful comments...this is a fun technique to do with all the bold stamps.
