Countdown to Confetti - Bear Hugs


Welcome to the third and final day of Reverse Confetti's Countdown to the April release. 
All of the new products will be available at midnight EST tonight!



You're in for a treat with today's reveal. How precious is this koala image from the new Bear Hugs set?!?!


I stamped one of the images from Bear Hugs on watercolor paper, watercolored using a mixture of Zig Real-Brush markers and Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. Next, I cut a circle frame out of white card stock and layered that over the stamped image to create the window. Around the circular frame, I added a Wreaths die-cut and accented with a cloud from Weather It Together and a sentiment flag topped with a button and twine. I adhered two strips of a soft green patterned paper along the left and right borders, the mounted the whole thing to a card base.

I can't get enough of these cute critters! Good thing there's lots more inspiration today! Visit the Reverse Confetti blog for a list of the Confetti Crew members who are posting today.
