It’s Thursday and time for 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/show a tip until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member (then it’s a new round with new questions/theme). To see previous Confetti Camera post, simply click on “Confetti Camera” under the categories link on our sidebar.

Today the spotlight is on Confetti Crew member, LEIGH PENNER,


Her Confetti Camera project…


I love the feather image in the PEACOCK PRETTIES stamp set — it’s so fun & beautiful!

I was trying to figure out how I could “colour” it in so that the circle, the heart and the body of the feather were all different colours.

I decided to try doing this with some Pigment Pearls.

 Here’s what I did:

I stamped my feather onto some vellum with the Perfect Pearls medium.

Then, with a brush, I coloured in each section, using a different colour of pearls.

I decided to make a different feather and changed up the colouring slightly. I fussy cut them both out by hand.

Then, when assembled my card, I used the border stamp in the Peacock Pretties set and used the same technique to colour it in along the bottom of my card.


I just love how it shimmers in the light!

I stamped my sentiment (from PAPER CRANE), which ties everything together nicely.
