Hello and Happy Thursday, ‘Fetti Friends!

The 8th is quickly approaching and while we don’t have a release this month (remember, every other month), we do have a fabulous blog hop planned filled with lots of Reverse Confetti inspiration.  Of course, there will be a prize up for grabs, too, so mark your calendars and come hop with us!

. . . . .

We’re glad that you are joining us for this week’s Confetti Camera!

In this weekly segment, one of the Confetti Crew designers will have the camera on both themselves, as a designer, and on their Reverse Confetti creations.  For this round, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from a fun tip or technique from each of our designers.  A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such on Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will answer the same set of questions until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member.  To see previous Confetti Camera post, simply click on “Confetti Camera” under the categories link on our sidebar.

This week the Confetti Camera is zooming in on yours truly. Yep, you are stuck with me today!  And, I’m stuck on kraft, black, red, green and white.  I used this same color palette yesterday and I went ahead and stayed with it for today’s project.  I’ll go ahead and warn you that you may just see it again with my hop project.

Well here it is in all it’s same color palette as yesterday glory…

Coffee

This card uses the new set, BE A BARISTA.  I love the versatility of this coffee set!  Today I kept it simple and used the solid coffee image, but dressed it up a little bit by using a little tip that I want to share with you.

I love a little bit of sparkle or bling and this little trick is the perfect way to get that perfect amount of shimmer.  The above picture doesn’t capture it, but see the shimmery coffee below.

Here’s what you are going to need…

1. Sakura Stardust Pen

2. Aqua Painter filled with RUBBING ALCOHOL

Tip: Do not go for the cheap aqua painter!  This is definitely a product that you get what you pay for.  The cheaper versions leak and the brush sheds.  You should expect to pay $7-9 for one.

SakuraPen

The first thing you are going to do is scribble a little bit of the Sakura Stardust Pen on the coffee around the edges of the coffee image…

GlitterPenCoffee

Next, using the aqua painter filled with rubbing alcohol, go over the glittered area and spread it all around.  This creates a very thin, but oh-so-sparkly, layer over the coffee image…

Viola!…the perfect touch of shimmer added!
