Create A Smile: January Release Crystal Letters and Numbers

 Hello Crafters! 

Create A Smile is celebrating their January Release this week. Their is so much cute stuff stuffed into this one release. I love it all but . . .

But I really love these. I don't know if it's because they make me think of sparkly glittery things or because I haven't seen another set like it before but I am smitten. 

You know I had to watercolor them right? I just had to. 

I love how that little bit of shadow really makes them appear 3d. I don't think I'll ever get tired of that. 

If ever sequins belonged with a stamp set I think it's this one. I just adore all that sparkle. 

There is plenty more inspiration on the Create A Smile blog today and all week long. I hope you'll head over and see. 

Thanks for dropping in!
