Gellatos, Stamp Your Story and Kraft

I wanted to play with my new purchases; Tropical Gelatos and Hero Arts Stamp Your Story, My Favorite set. I was trying to come up with a way to use them both together and I decided to make
a card for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Kraft

I used a Hero Arts tall Kraft card. I scribbled the four gelatos in the set onto the card and went over
them with my Tim Holtz water brush. Then I stamped the feather and butterfly images onto the card with Black Archival ink. I wasn't happy with just the black so I scribbled colors into the feathers and
butterflies with the gelatos and went over them with my water brush. I pulled different words from
the set and stamped them onto the card using the Black Archival ink again. When I was done
the card still didn't look finished so I added some Teresa Collins enamel dots. I was suprised
at how fast the card went together. I concentrated more on playing with the products than designing the card.

Hope you enjoy the card. All your comments are sincerely appreciated.
