Countdown to Confetti - Butterfly Dreams

It's day 2 of Countdown to Confetti with Reverse Confetti and I hope you're enjoying all of the sneak peeks of this release - it's a keeper, that's for sure! Visit the Reverse Confetti blog for a full list of designers sneak peeking today as well as full graphics and more inspiration from Jen. All new products will be available at Reverse Confetti on March 8th, whoot whoot! 

Butterflies and watercolor, what's not to love! I combined the two along with a bit of camouflage die-cutting using two of the smaller dies in the Confetti Cuts - Butterfly Dreams.

I started by brushing distress inks onto watercolor paper, overlapping each of the colors just a bit. Then I added a bit more of each color using a piece of acetate, smooshing more ink here and there. Once that dried, I stamped one of the beautiful sentiment filled butterflies from Butterfly Dreams using my MISTI tool to get solid coverage.



Reverse Confetti is giving a $15 gift certificate to one lucky commenter, so leave a little love in the comment section before you leave today. Another gift certificate will be given away by commenting at the Reverse Confetti Facebook page as well. Stop back tomorrow for one last day of sneak peeks.
