JUGS #240 Technique Challenge

Over at Just Us Girls it is the Technique Challenge
 this time round and it is a
Kissing Technique which you can find Here.
Finding the right stamps and inks was interesting. 
It is a bit hard to see the kissing on the flowers as it is a very small
floral background stamp.
After a couple of trial inkings I finally came up with
for this

I used the following products on my card
White card stock as my base
Textured card stock
Flowers from GinaK - Stippled Nature
SU Clearly For You stamp used for the
Kissing Technique on the flowers
Sizzix Textured Impressions Adorning Accents & Edgelits
Leaves from Kaszazz
Sentiment from Inspired by Stamping - A Lovely Birthday
Distress Inks - Spun Sugar & Aged Mahogany
Memento Ink - Pistachio
Pearls - Flourish with Bling
Heather Flower Soft for centre of flower
Thanks for dropping in
