Reverse Confetti July 2022 New Release Hop

Hello there, crafty friends. Reverse Confetti has a new release and I have a card and video to share using some of the new goodies…

You can watch the video on how I created this card HERE or click on the video below…

Let’s start by creating the background. I used three colors of Distress Inks and a piece of acetate to create a quick inky background. I applied three colors of ink from lightest to darkest on to the acetate with my watercolor cardstock under the acetate to give me a point of reference on how big to make the stripes. 

I spritzed the ink with water and then flipped over the acetate and laid it on the watercolor panel. When removing the acetate, I peeled it off to one side and then at the end of the panel, instead of lifting it off, I dragged it back to the other side. This helps get a more color saturated first inking.
Next, I added texture by die-cutting the inky background with the new Deco-cover panel. I thought the design looked little suns and sun rays so I flipped the design upside down than how it is intended to fit today’s card theme. I stamped the adorable images from THIS stamp set using black pigment ink on a panel of 110 lb. white Neenah card stock. I chose to use black pigment ink because I wanted to show that when you stamp with black pigment ink and heat emboss it with clear embossing powder, it really makes your images pop. I like to die-cut my images out before I color in case I mess up when I die cut using the coordinating dies. 
To create the sand along the bottom, I tore a piece of kraft cardstock and used some vintage photo distress oxide ink to add some definition to the edges. I spritzed some water and picked up the leftover ink up with a paintbrush and flicked it on the torn piece to add some texture. 
I wanted to have some waves in the background so I used those of the new hot foil plates to create that. I’m so excited that Reverse Confetti now is offering hot foil plates. There are three new sets….Birthday Wishes, Thank You, and the Elements set. I used the scallop border in THIS set to create the waves. 
I also white heat embossed a sentiment off camera from this Dog Days Stamp Set on a black cardstock strip. You may noticed that I adhered some of the elements off the edges of the card base. I like to do this sometimes when I have a tight space to work within and I just use a larger envelope when sending my card. 

I hope this has inspired you to create a scene card.
There’s much more inspiration to see using this new release…
