Hello and Happy Tuesday, ‘Fetti Fans!

It’s still sinking in that this adventure started over a year ago and that we just had our first release of our SECOND year.  From the time that I started Reverse Confetti, I said that I never wanted to be the biggest, I just wanted to do and be the best.  Of course, the first year presented a few learning opportunities, plenty of fun, lots of creativity and tons of moments where I sat back and thought about how thankful I am that I get to share my passion in this format.  Of course, I wouldn’t be sitting back and reviewing the past year in awe without YOU!  Our customers/’Fetti Fans are amazing!  Thank you all for such a wonderful first year…here’s to many more!

Our next order of business today is pretty “FAB!”  Did you see?…we’re the featured company over on MOXIE FAB WORLD this week.  I’m just *a wee bit* excited Teri featuring us.  Thanks, Teri!!

A little of this.  A little of that.  Now, a card!

It’s Tuesday and TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY.  I am really digging the watercolor trend that is in full swing right now.  My Facebook feed is flooded with images of “homework” from a class that I just know that I should signed up for.  No time for classes at the moment, but I gave watercoloring a go on my own for this card using the new LET’S CHILL stamps set and LET’S CHILL Confetti Cuts..

The popsicles are done in ombre watercolor.  When I created this, I didn’t have any watercolors other than my kid’s Crayola ones (with colors are mixed together), so I opted for using my Tombow markers.  I colored on a plastic plate and then picked up the ink using an aqua-painter.  I saturated the (watercolor) paper in yellow and then brushed upward to get an ombre effect…perfect for these popsicles!  I just love the way it came out!

As you can see, the top portion of the popsicle has the center lines cut out.  I then popped this up on a solid popsicle (light yellow) for added dimension.  I kept the embellishments simple…sequins with rhinestones and washi tape, as I really wanted the popsicles to take center stage.

I’ll be experimenting a little more with watercolors, too.  I just picked up a Kuretake Gansai Tambi set of 24 from Amazon.  WOW, these colors are amazing!  Vibrant and rich.  I need to get used to them, as these aren’t your kid’s Crayolas!…and when I do, good things are to come of it!  If anyone else has this set, I’d love to hear your take on it or see what you have created with it!
