CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop - Let's Celebrate!


Hello! Reverse Confetti & CardMaker Magazine are teaming up today for a blog hop, and I'm here to share this bright little number! :) Hopefully you've reached my blog by way of Lisa Silver's blog (the blog hop started over on the CardMaker Magazine blog, so if you'd like to start at the beginning, please click ***here***.)

To create my card, I first started with a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 watercolor paper, and covered it with a light coating of water.  I then sprinkled the layer with Turquoise, Orange and Fuchsia Color Burst watercolor powders.  I tried to leave them alone to do their thing, but I'm a hoverer, so I dabbed the watercolor paper here and there with a wet brush to help speed things along, and used a paper towel to soak up the excess water/color in any areas that were getting muddled. 



Since I'm not the most patient person when it comes to watercolor, I grabbed my heat tool to help speed up the drying process.  Once the panel was dry, I stamped the feather image from Pretty Peacocks in Versamark ink, then heat set them with white embossing powder.  I then trimmed the layer on an angle, and adhered it to a light gray card base with foam tape.  The sentiment from Celebrations was stamped in Versamark ink onto orange textured CS, then heat embossed with white powder.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment to the card front with foam tape, then embellished with silver enamel dots.
