Love Is In The Air... Kissing Heart 2 Heart Challenge

This week on the Heart 2 Heart challenge we are kissing! *BLUSH* Actually for those of you who are not familiar with the kissing technique Heart 2 Heart has put on a great video demonstration this technique and it's variation. You can also find demonstrations for this technique on the MyCTMH TV.

I decided to use the variation of second generation kissing first generation background. I used the stamp set D1353 Campin' Fever and the stamp set D1477 Universal Backgrounds for this part. I inked both the wood grain background and the wooden sign image in Chocolate Ink Z2111. I stamped the image on a piece of scrap paper once and kissed it with the inked wooden grain; I then stamped it on a piece of colonial white cardstock 1388. Here are some pictures of the image before and after been kissed with the wood grain.

I trimmed them out and inked the edges. I then stamped the image of the bear in the truck from the stamp set C1409 Beary Busy on a piece of Colonial White cardstock 1388, Tulip cardstock X5753, and Sweetheart B&T paper X7134B. I cut out portion of the truck from the B&T and the Tulip Cardstock and paper pieced it to the Colonial White Truck. I stamped the hearts from C1409 Beary Busy on Cotton Candy cardstock X5760, cut it out and coloured a few heart with the Tulip ink pad Z2166 using the Blending Pen 3174. I adhere the hearts with 3-D Foam Tape Z1151. I double matted my colonial white truck to cotton candy and tulip cardstock.

My base card is in tulip cardstock and the base mat is in Sweetheart B&T. I stamped the greeting Love You in Tulip Ink and the heart in Cotton Candy ink Z2193, and the heart stitching in Chocolate, from the stamp set C1441 Affection.

Well here is my entry for this weeks challenge. So much fun can't wait to see the next challenge.
