Reverse Confetti Countdown to Confetti - Day 1

Hello, hello!  I am so excited because today kicks off Reverse Confetti's 4th birthday celebration!  There are so many new and amazing products headed your way!  The design team will be showcasing all of the new goodies over the next few days, and everything will be available for purchase on May 8th in the Reverse Confetti store and at your favorite retailers!



Today, to kick off the festivities, we have the gang from CardMaker joining us to help get the party started!!


For my card today, I am using the adorable new Miso Happy stamp set!  These adorable pandas are one of two new critter sets being added to the lineup this month!

To create my card, I started off with a piece of watercolor paper cut to 4" x 5.25".  I used the new Leaf Lattice stencil and my Zig CleanColor Real Brush Pens to create this watercolor background.  I simply colored in the openings of the stencil with a green marker along the bottom edge of each leaf and then used a brush and clean water to pull the color to fill in each leaf completely.  I only colored in the openings along the right side of the stencil, leaving the top left corner white.  When it was dry, I used an ink blending tool and Cracked Pistachio distress ink to add a pale green hue to the right side of the piece for added interest.  I added a strip of yellow patterned paper from the new Pattern Play paper pad to ground my panda trio.  I stamped and colored the pandas, bamboo and rock pile from the set, diecut them with the coordinating Miso Happy Confetti Cuts, and adhered them to the watercolor panel to create my scene.  I stamped a sentiment from the previously released Tie-riffic stamp set, and finished things off with some white gel pen accents.  Finally, I popped the panel up on a white A2 card base with foam tape to complete the card.

I just love these cute little guys!  I gave them shiny noses with a black glaze pen.  Sometimes, it's all in the details! :)
