Countdown to Confetti - My Rock


Today is Reverse Confetti's third and final countdown day for the January release. We've saved our newest faith-based set, My Rock, for today. I hope you like!




All of the new products will be available in the Reverse Confetti store
at midnight ET January 8.

Be sure to visit the Reverse Confetti blog for links to all the designers posting peeks today. Leave comments on each designer's blog for a chance to win a $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificate. Also, head over to the Reverse Confetti Facebook page for an additional giveaway. 



The card base is another watercolor layering experiment, this time in mossy greens, deep blues, and a bit of light gray. 

The My Rock quote is heat embossed in gold. I have to say the Mother Teresa attribution is easier to read in real life than in the photo. The rest of the quote was heat embossed twice, which I had hoped would help it stand out more, but instead made it a little more difficult to read. I couldn't bear to trash this, though, and I think you *can* still read it. I just wouldn't heat emboss twice if I had a do-over!



I die-cut the new Cross Confetti Cuts from vellum and the flower from watercolor paper, layered them together and topped with gold cord and a large aquamarine gemstone, then popped up the whole thing with some foam tape for dimension. Final touches: some green satin sequins and a touch of gold splatter.


Stamps: My Rock

Confetti Cuts Dies: Cross

Ink: Versamark

Paper: watercolor paper, Stone card stock, vellum

Other: gold embossing powder, gold cord, gemstone, foam tape, Koi watercolors
