Countdown to Confetti: Roundabout and Roundabout Additions

DSC_0015

Hi there! Today is the first day of sneaks for the upcoming MINI Reverse Confetti release that will be available tomorrow for purchase! It has two sets and two dies!  For personal reasons, I wasn’t able to create much for this release but I was able to play with the  stamp sets. I looked at the sets and just adored the big circle images with the sentiments engraved into the stamp. The stamp perfectly and smoothly.  I wanted to take the smaller circle dots from the set and create a bokeh look! So I watercolored the background with my Gansai watercolors and then took some white ink and the circle stamps and stamped over the top. Some I did double stamping, some I didn’t…. Then I layered the Birthday Wishes sentiment over the top and create two “tails” with the dashed lines stamps from both sets. So what do you think?

Be sure to check out the Reverse Confetti blog to links to the other designer’s projects…. Here’s a peek at the two sets releasing tomorrow.

Reverse Confetti – September Color Challenge

Yup, did you know? Reverse Confetti hosts a color challenge every month to kick start your color inspiration!!!! I’m here today to share with you the card I made inspired by the challenge. Here’s a look.

Lots of technique here…  I used the Triangles die cut and used it as a stencil. I put a whole bunch of crackle embossing paste over the top of the stencil/die cut until the entire panel was covered (moved the stencil around) and allowed to dry! I LOVE THAT CRACKLE look. I  think it is the coolest thing ever!!! I went over the top of the panel with Tim Holtz distress inks which really made the crackled stencil pop more!!!! And then, I flicked some water over the top to create those water splatters. This can only work with distress inks because distress inks are formulated to react with water….. See the waves along the top? It’s from this die! LOVE IT! It could be water waves, hilltops.. Very versatile. The distress inks color I am working with today are perfect for the color challenge…. Pumice Stone, Picked Raspberry and Scattered Straw… To finsih off the card, I used the Give Thanks Dies and stamped the sentiment from this stamp set and adhered with foam dimension, after putting a little yellow/gold floss behind the back….

I broke out Rocky the Raccoon here! How cute is he. Seriously.   I used a stencil in my stash and some embossing paste to create the background!   To create the horizontal panels on the sketch, I grabbed some distress ink! 🙂 I colored Rocky with some watercolors. See the note he is holding? It’s from this stamp and die from the latest release!!
