Countdown to Confetti Day #3

Hello my inky fingered friends. Today is Day 3 of the countdown to Reverse Confettis 50th Release! I have 3 cards to share with you today all featuring the incredible critter Illustrations by Dawn Machell.

I used the same color palette for all three cards,  it used variations of colors in each. For example, the pink is a different shade of pink in each card, giving each project a different feel, even though the same four colors are used. Pink, sunshine yellow, blue , and navy.

For the first card I inkblended a rosy pink onto my card panel and splattered it with water, white ink, and shimmer. I stamped my images from School Days  onto bright white Neenah Cardstock and copic colored. After cutting out with the School Days Confetti Cuts, inadded white dot highlights.

I adhered the images onto my inkblended panel then added a heat embossed banner strip. I finished it off with a sprinkling of clear iridescent sequins.

On my second card I used the new Chalk it Up stamp set and matching dies. I also used a new cover panel  die called Double Stitched Window, it reminded me of a decorative Polaroid photo, so I created a shaker card with it.

I trimmed 1/8th inch off of each of the four sides and adhered some clear acetate on the back. I framed it out with thick Tombow foam tape, and prepared my panel.

I inkblended my background in sky blues and green before splattering with the same combination as my first card. Then I stamped and copic colored all of my images. I gave a playful dotted texture to these images before highlighting and glueing down my images.

I added a generous pile of sequins to the center and mounted my “Polaroid” over top. Then I mounted the entire shaker upon some pink textured cardstock. I love that the glossy heat embossed texture is shiny right next to the reflective acetate.

On my third card, I used the new Spring Bunnies stamps and dies. I inked my sky onto the upper portion of the panel creating a crisp deep sky. I loved the sunny cloud from Chalk it Up so much, I used it here too.

I created a little butterfly catching scene and adhered it over a pink embossed banner. I used a trio of hearts from the Huggable stamp set, and used those instead of sequins. I really love this trio of cRds. I used so many of the same elements and colors and techniques. Yet achieved such different results in each card.
