Reverse Confetti August Release Hop


Reverse Confetti's August release is now available, and the Confetti Crew and friends are blog hopping to celebrate! I hope you'll join us!

All of the new products are now available in the Reverse Confetti store.




Today's card is a tribute to the amazingly talented Kay Miller, who recently stepped down from the Reverse Confetti team to pursue other fun adventures. While I'm super excited for her, I am also going to miss her unique Reverse Confetti creations. As I was working with Toucan of Friendship, and imagining the bright colors I would use to bring it to life, I thought of Kay and her bright, colorful creations and decided to make a Kay-inspired card!


I started with a turquoise and green watercolored and splattered background, then layered Copic-colored Toucan of Friendship images in all sorts of bright colors. Last step was to add a stamped sentiment and a few clear sequins for some sparkle.


Stamps: Toucan of Friendship

Dies: Toucan of Friendship

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black

Paper: watercolor paper, white card stock

Other: Copic markers, white gel pen, watercolors, foam tape, clear sequins

What a gorgeous tribute piece to celebrate Kay's contribution to the Reverse Confetti team, Amy. I've been following you both for some time and you are both so, so talented! This Toucan card definitely has her "watercolored BG" influence, but your fabulous colouring and composition skills definitely shine through. This Toucan set is super!
