I often feel drawn to cards that have clustered elements to them. It's fascinating to me because it's so different from what I usually aim for (clean and simple), but there's so much visual interest and depth to clusters. And I cannot seem to get them as effortlessly as I'd like.
I've come to realize that a lot of those cards are created by crafters who do scrapbooking - and after watching several scrapbooking videos, I can definitely see that inspiration. I, myself, haven't done scrapbooking. So, clustering is a bit of a mystery -- but one that I'm driven to master.
So, here's an attempt using Echo Park Sentiment Words die, along with a small tag die (retired) and some fun patterned paper. A strip of sparkly gold cardstock and a handful of enamel dots and sequins and the card was done.
