Question "kissed" technique

Can someone explain how the "kissed" technique works? I saw a really cute card using Shapes and Shadows where they "kissed" the paisley background stamp. The link to the card is below.

Thanks!

Sure - it's just like it sounds. Kiss two stamps together!

In the sample you have here, it looks like she inked up the solid image, then stamped it onto her Paisley. THEN she stamped it on her cardstock. Make sense?

I should also mention that there seems to be several variations out there. One of my favorites is stamping a large solid image with a lighter color (like a monogram alphabet or the big U from All About U...) then kissing it with a smaller stamp in a darker color.

For instance, if I was making a "Love U" card, I might ink up the "U" with a light pink, then ink up the small heart from that set in a darker pink or red. But instead of stamping that heart on the paper, I'd stamp into on the U (that's covered in pink ink). The only thing to watch with this method is cleaning off your stamp between kisses. Then, once the U is covered with the pink ink and red hearts, I'd huff on it and then stamp it on my cardstock.

It's a very addicting technique, though - be careful!
