CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Kissing is for Stamping

Hello and welcome to CTMH's Technique Blog Hop. This month our featured technique is "Kissing" with Stamps. 

If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can start at the beginning with Melissa's Blog. If you came here from HEART AND SOULS SCRAPPERS you are in the right place. Now on to my project:

So what is the "Kissing" Technique. Here is an awesome video that explains it real well and gives plenty of inspiration.

I absolutely love the La Vie en Rose and the Beloved Bouquet Stamp Set. I decided to use them in scrapbooking some of my wedding photos. I was married 5 years ago but procrastinated big time on my wedding album since I have like 1000 photos lol. Here is another blog post where I did some more pages that sort of go with this one. 

So anyways, for the kissing technique I decided to use the small flower outline for the bride page and ink it with black over 2nd generation pomegranate inked title alphabet. I also used the same technique over 2nd and 3rd generation pomegrante inked big flower. Then I outlined the accents and title with a black journaling pen. Here is a close up:

I also made a page for my husband's photos. I tried to beef it up a bit but it looks kind of plain. I might change it yet because I didn't like it as much. This time I used the branch type stamp over 1st generation pomegranate for the title.
