Kissing Stamps

Hi Everyone

This month over at WOW HQ is for us to let you know what one of our favourite techniques is.  Mine with WOW is using the reverse bleaching technique

  1. Ink entire surface of panel with distress ink (works best with mid-tone distress inks: not too dark or too light)
  2. Take solid stamp (De-Vine, flowers or brocade) and ink and stamp with embossing ink
  3. Take another stamp (use French Music in this case to save time) ink that up with a darker ink and kiss stamps to leave impression on solid stamp.
  4. Clear embossing powder: sprinkle, tap, heat, Wow!
  5. Mist entire tag with water and “lift” the colour with paper towel
  6. Embossed image will retain colour
  7. Leave as it is, or use craft iron and another paper towel to remove embossing powder.

  Have a great time using this technique



  1. Always love this effect! Marion mentioned your "life stones" you showed recently. Wd you give me a link as I can't locate your example anywhere. Thank you so much.~Terry Y.
