Celebrate the Fourth

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

And here is my take:

Fireworks & Sparkles | by karen @ carefree creations

I love fireworks so it was a no brainer that I also love this sparkler stamp set. I thought the set was perfect for this sketch.

The rhinestones in the centers are colored with Sharpie markers. I think this is the first time I’ve used Sharpies instead of Copics. I think the Sharpies actually ended up being brighter and less opaque. I may have to use them in the future!

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I don’t usually think of Independence Day as a “card holiday” but your card is fabulously perfect for the occasion! I love the sparkly fireworks and the strip of glitter. It’s a brilliant take on the sketch!
