True Love Stories - WOYWW

Hi,friends. Happy Saturday!
This week the challenge at Our Creative Corner is hosted by Lisa M
- use Kissing technique and include X and O letters on your project.
Kissing technique is simply using two inked stamps kiss each other then
stamping the one you want on the project. There are some other ways to use 
this technique please check here.

Here is my journal page for this challenge. After completing the background
page with gesso, watercolor and acrylic paint, I apply acrylic debber on "X"
foam stamp and VersaFine on the polkadot rubber stamp,
and stamp the X on polkadot then stamp the X on the page.

Remember to clean the stamp throughly after each "kissing".
Same steps for letter O.

After stamping XOs, I glue some glitter on the letters.

Here's the final look.
Stamp: Fiskars Lasting Love Quotes,
             Crafty Secrets Fairyland,
             Doodle Bug Foam stamps
Color: VersaFine Ink Pad,
            Adirondaok Dabber, 
            Image Artist Acrylic,
            Copic Markers,
