Kiss The Card and A Twist

Hello there! Lisa here and ohhh, what a phenomenal day it is today! It might be cold and rainy or beautiful with the sun shining where you are at, but regardless, it's the weekend and NOT Monday, so that can only be a great thing!  Well, before I begin explaining this week's new challenge, we'd just like to thank everyone who participated in lasts week's Resist With A Twist (Wings) challenge.  We certainly drew quite a bit of inspiration from all your outstanding entries so be sure to check back this coming Wednesday to see if you are the winner of that challenge.
Okay....are you ready for this? 
 Here is the next challenge at hand....
the KISSING TECHNIQUE and the twist is...
you have to include the letters X and O somewhere in your card or project! 
For those of you who may be unaware of this technique or haven't attempted it in ages, I'm including an informational link here that should inspire you to join in.  Below is also a photo of the stamps I used to complete the kissing technique. 
Here are the basic steps to follow

1.)  Ink one stamp with a light color
2.) Ink second stamp with a darker more contrasting color
3.)  Press the stamps together to fuse their designs
4.) Huff (exhale hot air onto the stamp to re-moisten the ink)
5.) Stamp the combined image on to your medium of choice (paper, foil, wax, material, chipboard, etc.)
Also: Please give credit to the stamp company you used in your card or project and don't forget to include the X and O, but mostly, HAVE FUN!!!

Here are our samples we are offering up to you this week...

I really had to go back to my stamping roots for this one and even though I have done this technique in the past, it's been quite some time and I found it a challenge. Love the result though!
