Countdown to Confetti: Dream in Color and Peacock Pretties Sneak Peeks

Welcome to Day Two of Reverse Confetti Sneak Peeks! You're in for a treat, because today, the Confetti Crew is featuring two new sets, DREAM IN COLOR and PEACOCK PRETTIES. Visit the Reverse Confetti blog for links to all of today's peeks -- it's going to be colorful!

DREAM IN COLOR is a fantastic sentiment set that is part of the Reverse Confetti Key Words Collection. Look for more mix-and-match sentiments in future releases. 



I went clean-and-simple today, with a rainbow of twine and buttons to compliment my "color me happy" sentiment. The hardest part was deciding which fantastic sentiment to use first! The letters in the word "color" are colored with Copic markers and both parts of the sentiment are heat-embossed for an extra sharp look.







PEACOCK PRETTIES is a gorgeous set of four images and four sentiments. I had so much fun playing around with the bold, graphic images in this set!


First I stamped some pattern onto the background using watermark ink. The feather is inked in four different inks, then trimmed out and popped up for dimension. 


I incorporated two of the sentiments, the yellow "beYOUtiful" at the top and a subtle "LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE" in white along the bottom.





We have a little something for YOU!  Leave a comment on my post today for your chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to REVERSE CONFETTI!  You have until 1 pm EST on May 7th to leave a comment.  (Only one comment per blog per day, please!).   The winner will be randomly chosen from all the DT blogs and Sneak Peeks for May 5-7th and announced on the Reverse Confetti blog at 5 pm EST on May 7th.  Good Luck!!

Your cards are so awesome! The first one is so full of life and color, love the twine and buttons to match the sentiment!
The second one is more of a personal one, love the sentiment and love how you colored the flourish and that ribbon just adds the perfect pop of color.

Hugs,
