Count Down to Confetti | Day Three

Today is the third and final day of the Countdown to Confetti.  All of the new products will be available in the Reverse Confetti store tonight at midnight EST.

My first card features Stained Glass Butterflies and Cloudy Day Cover Panel:

I stamped the images from Stained Glass Butterflies with VersaMark ink onto watercolor paper and heat embossed them in silver.  The flowers and butterfly were painted with Distress Ink mixed with water.  All of the images were cut out using the Stained Glass Butterflies Confetti Cuts.

The Cloudy Day Cover Panel was also cut from watercolor paper and washed with the same Distress inks.  After it was dry, I adhered it to a white 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" note card, and then pieced in the clouds.

The flowers, leaves and butterfly were arranged on a piece of white cardstock matted on silver cardstock.  The sentiment comes from the Stained Glass Butterflies set and was stamped in black ink on the white cardstock.   Some of the flowers were raised with foam adhesive, and others were glued directly to the white panel.

My second card features Best Sentiments, Multi-Step Cacti, Cross Tiles Cover Panel, and Three Tags:

I die cut a panel with the Cross Tiles Cover Panel and used it as a stencil, ink blending Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink in the center openings to create a heart shape.  I then masked those openings, and blended Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide into the rest of the openings.  After removing the make shift stencil, I used the same inks to blend the background and spritzed it with water.

The cacti from Multi-Step Cacti were stamped with regular Distress ink and shaded slightly with Copic markers.  The pots were colored with Copics.  All of the images were cut out using the Multi-Step Cacti Confetti Cuts.

The sentiment comes from the new Best Sentiment stamp set.  I stamped it one of the tags from the Three Tags Confetti Cuts, and added a little ribbon as a finishing touch.
