More than kisses, letters mingle souls.
My heart races at the mere mention of love letters. This week, be still my heart, for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is Love Letters.
The symbolic folk art image of a heart in a hand has been around for centuries. I'm sure that you've seen hundreds of examples. With that iconic Valentines Day image in mind, I designed an updated paper pieced version by adding the darling little letters found in the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive stamp set, Card Exchanging Friends.
The intentionally inky fingers were created by using distress inks to create shadows. Don't all stampers get inky fingers? Speaking of ink....Wouldn't it be great to get some for free? Show us your interpretation of the Love Letters theme by linking your creation to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and you could be the next weekly winner of a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp where you can choose what ever you'd like. Your project could also be featured in our designer spotlight and showcased on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog.
