It's RC Color Challenge Time {Fly}

This one snuck up on me. I'm glad I found some time yesterday to squeeze out this card. Creativity is a funny thing.....some days it just happens. I'm glad it did with this card. I loooove how it turned out AND I really LOVE how many different Reverse Confetti Stamps I was able to use. 

I started with the background and pulled out some polka dots from Celebrate Cake, Spookie Cuties, and Happy Harbor (the little bubble trio....just ink up a single dot). When creating a background, remember to start with your largest stamp first and then fill in with the smaller images. I always take a step back (or hold my paper at arms length) to see where some "holes" need to be filled. You can also try squinting to see where you may need to fill in a dot here or there. 
I used my color spritzer tool to add a few splatters of turquoise. I'm so glad I hoard HOLD onto things. This tool has come back into "style". I believe Tim Holtz just released one to use with is distress markers. 

I cut an orange strip of scallops from the Double edge Scallop die that RC just released. I used the smallest ones and have them peeking out from the edge. I also stamped some Sno Cone stripes from So Stripey,  along the right side for another bit of added interest. 

And the show stopper is my sentiment tag. I cut a Sno Cone large tag from Tag Me Confetti Cuts. I used the Paper Crane stamp set for the sentiment. I stamped those in a darker turquoise ink and then stamped a few open triangles in Orange Fizz ink. I thought the new Arrow Die would be great on this card. It kind of fit the theme.....arrows fly, after all. I tied on some orange bakers twine and added a trio of white sequins. 

Here is the Challenge graphic:

Here are all the Reverse Confetti products I used on today's card.

  1. how fun, Lisa! what a great way to stretch all of your stamps! those bubbles as a background are super cute!

  2. Wow you DID use a lot of sets on this beauty. Way to go. I'm especially impressed by your splatter. That would have went incredibly wrong for me!

  3. Beautiful! I just love that arrow - may have to open my wallet!! LOL
