Never Dull Your Sparkle

I’m on summer break from work, so I have a couple weeks to stamp! I’m hoping to engage in those challenges that I love, but never seem to have the energy to put ink to paper the rest of the year. Or course, I also downloaded some books from the library – here’s to finding balance, lol.

Today I am posting a card for CAS(e) This Sketch. I love sketches and find them the best for my creative process. Here is what I came up with:

Never Dull Your Sparkle | by karen @ carefree creations

Keeping the card clean & simple, I just did a watercolor wash directly on the card base. I added a glitter paper die cut. Originally I was going to back the die cut with a colored layer, but nothing was working and I realized that I liked the background showing through. The die is layered up to give it dimension. Since the sparkle isn’t clear in the main photo, here is a close up:

Thanks for taking a peek!
