Sparkle Creations September Sneak Peek - Day 1

Post 2/2: If you are looking for my final My Time Made Easy project, please scroll down!

Welcome to the first day of sneak peeks of the September Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps release! Sparkle is releasing 3 new images at midnight EST this Saturday, September 11.. Today the team is showing Fall Charlotte!


This is my attempt at a Clean and Simple (CAS) card. DH always tells me that I put too much on my cards... I guess I won't be asking his opinion anymore.. LOL, just kidding! While I do love layers, sometimes I think less is more. I colored this sweet image of Charlotte with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I love using these 2 coloring mediums together, but I always get a headache when I use odorless mineral spirits (to blend my colored pencils). This time I used Goo Gone. I don't think it blends as well as OMS, but at least I didn't feel ill after coloring my image!

Please welcome our fabulously talented guest designer this month... Risa West!! Be sure to visit her and the rest of the SCRS designers for more peeks of Fall Charlotte. Sparkle will be giving away a Fall Charlotte to one lucky person! For a chance to win, you need to comment on all of the designer's blogs (list below). Then head on over to the SCRS blog and comment on the Charlotte post. You have until midnight EST each day to comment. The lucky winner will be announced the following day!
