Simon Says Stamp August Kit – Card 3


Card three is based on Operation Write Home’s Card Sketch #235.  I also did some stamp alteration again for this card.  I wanted to make this a love card and not an ice cream one, so instead of cutting up my stamp, I used scotch tape to selectively block off words on the stamp allowing me to ink it up, then pull off the tape and only stamp the words I wanted.   The background was embossed with the new Tim Holtz texture fade called “waves and bubbles”.
