Hi crafty friends, it’s Friday again and I’m back with the new Daring Cardmakers Challenge. Our host for this week is the lovely Joanne and our prompt is Kiss Kiss. Joanne informed us that today is Kissing Friday! Did you know that on the Friday of Shrove Week, English schoolboys were once entitled to kiss the girls without being punished or rejected? https://www.historic-uk.com/CultureUK/Kissing-Friday/ I admit I had never heard of this, it certainly doesn’t fit in the #MeToo era we thankfully now live in! Thankfully Joanne hasn’t challenged us to force kisses on anyone but we are asked to make a card with a kiss. It could be an image of characters kissing, some luscious lips or perhaps you’ll use a kissing technique with your rubber stamps. For extra brownie points K.I.S.S and make your card clean and simple!
So this prompt felt like the perfect excuse to use this cheeky stamp from Picket Fence Studios.
I also tried to make it a CAS card so I used some die cut lipsticks (or maybe glamorous glue sticks!). I added some shadow for the lip sticks with a grey watercolour pencil and a water brush. To finish off the card I added some lips in the top corner. I recently purchased a WOW kit (I think it is an old subscription box which I purchased from their website. I used their blush pink foil with their Bonding powder to foil a stamped image of lips.
So I hope my card made you chuckle and that you will share a card with a kiss on the Daring Cardmakers Challenge this week. Keep safe and well everyone
