Reverse Confetti June Release Blog Hop!

and I hope you'll hop along with us!  The June Release is available NOW in the Reverse Confetti store, YAY!
 
 
 


For my first card I decided to make a shaker.  I don't make very many of these but I thought that the little images from MERMAID KISSES would make wonderful fillings for a shaker card!




To make my card I used the large scallop die from Circles n' Scallops Confetti Cuts to cut an opening on white card stock, then I used the dies again to cut one of the June QUICK CARD PANELS (the yellow polka dot).  I used another of the QUICK CARD PANELS inside my shaker.  I stamped and Copic colored lots of the little images from MERMAID KISSES and cut them out with the MERMAID KISSES Confetti Cuts.  I just love the sweet little jellyfish, don't you?!  I googled "jellyfish" to see pictures of them, I always thought they were pink, but they actually come in different colors, including an aqua color which is what I used to color mine.  To make the softly sponged pink scallops on my card I used the SCALLOPED TAG LAYER Confetti Cuts to cut some thin paper and I used it as a stencil.  I just love how this card turned out.  I think I need to make shaker cards more often lol!




For my next card I used the new SAND DOLLAR Confetti Cuts, along with MY HEART TRUSTS.



 
 
To make this card I first colored some watercolor paper using Distress Inks to make my background (Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Antique Linen and Tea Dye).  I wanted a very loose, organic look, reminiscent of the ocean along a shoreline.  Next I colored 2 smaller pieces of watercolor paper for the sand dollar, one using Tea Dye, Antique Linen, and a bit of Tumbled Glass, and the other using Brushed Corduroy.  If you look at pictures of sand dollars they sometimes have shades of blue in them, and the 5 loop centers are darker than the outside.  I stamped the sentiment from MY HEART TRUSTS with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I really do love how this card turned out, it's a bit different from my usual style, a bit more "artsy", but it was really fun to make!
