Don't Be Afraid To Sparkle, CTS177

Greetings, friends! I'm super excited to be a Guest Designer today at CAS(E) this sketch! When Chrissy emailed me the layout, I had an idea right away. I love when that happens! 

I inked up this magical little fairy with Memento ink and colored her with my Copic markers. I tend to be a glitter phobe most of the time, but with a sentiment like this I had to get over it! I added glitter to the wings and the stars, and used shimmer cardstock for my card base, which also has some pretty sparkle. 

Products Used: 
Stamp Sets: Pixie Dust (Avery Elle)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Tropical Bay Shimmer (My Minds Eye)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (Stampin Up)

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll visit the fabulous Design Team at CAS(E) this sketch!  You'll be glad you did! 

Inky hugs :)
