This was my first attempt at Porcelain Kitty but on glossy paper. I must not have cleaned my stamp off very well because I picked up some cream on the back ground of kitty but waste not, want not, I used her anyway.

Hey, ladybug, the technique used is actually called omit stamping and well, I guess I also used the kissing technique too, oops, forgot to mention that part. Anyway, here's how I did this particular card.
1. I outlined the edges of the stamp with a ballet blue marker and set to side (don't stamp down yet!)
2. I took the flower stamp and stamped into the ballet blue pad but highlighted areas of the flowers with a brilliant blue marker
3. I then took the flowered stamp and pressed it to the cat stamp, kissing the stamps together.
4. I repeated #2 & #3 two more times to different parts of the cat.
5. Here's the fun part! Huff on the stamp to moisten the inks and then quickly press down to your cardstock. Voila, a porcelain flowered kitty! :)
I hope that wasn't too confusing if you have any more questions you can always PM me. Thanks for all the sweet comments everyone! :)
