Countdown to Confetti - Day 1

*click HERE for my SugarPea Designs Sweet2Repeat post*

Hi, folks! It's time to start counting sleeps until the next release at Reverse Confetti. The February release will be available for purchase on February 8th, and it includes 5 Confetti Cuts, 4 stamp sets and a fresh set of Quick Cut Panels called Hoppin' Dots. You're gonna love it!

I watched the coolest tutorial by Julie Ebersole (thank you, Julie!) awhile back featuring a super cool outer space background,  and I just had to recreate it using the positive and negative spaces of the Confetti Cuts - Swirlies along with the sentiment from A Friend Like You. I love, love, love looking for ways to stretch my dies and stamps in new and different ways.

After creating the background with dye inks, water and white paint spatters, I die cut Swirlies from watercolor paper and vellum. I then watercolored the solid circle with light gray and yellow to resemble a full moon and then layered it with the vellum Swirlies. The embossed sentiment from A Friend Like You is popped up on foam adhesive for a bit of dimension with a scatter of wood veneer stars for embellishment.
