Make a Wish - Kiss Technique

A sweet birthday card made with A Muse Studio Birthday Balloons and Mod Backgrounds 1 is the card for today. The sweet heart balloon is "embellished" with a simple "kiss!"
Here's a close-up of the balloon. The kissing technique is simple. You need a solid stamp (the heart balloon) and a patterned stamp (Mod Backgrounds 1). You ink up the solid stamp and press the un-inked patterned stamp into the ink. This is called "kissing" and when  you pull the stamps apart, you stamp the inked stamp where you want it on your card and you'll be left with this wonderful patterned look. It's simple and fun. If you're doing multiples, don't forget to re-ink your solid stamp and clean off your patterned stamp in-between "kisses" as you want a clean surfaces each time.

The extra dots and stars are in the birthday balloons set and a white gel pen adds a little extra touch. The eucalyptus ribbon finishes off the balloon and perhaps helps hide the imperfection if your stamped balloon ribbon and balloon don't line up exactly. I don't know who this would apply to...surely not me (hahahahaha!!!). *wink*
A side grouping of stars finishes off the card.
