RC-April Color Challenge {You are the Best}

Welcome back for another fun post with some Reverse Confetti goodies.  It's our April Color Challenge.....AND I'm practicing my shaker card skills.

I'm so excited about how this card turned out. I have been so inspired lately by watercoloring (thinking about signing up for THIS class.....anyone want to do it with me?) and shaker cards. I combined them both here, today. 



Here is the inspiration photo and color board. Isn't it goooorgeous??!!!! 

I used my Tim Holtz Distress markers to brush on some color to my water color paper. I then used a water brush to "wash" out the color and give it a more realistic watercolor look. I hit it with my heat gun to dry and then used the All About You stamp set inked in black for my sentiment.
I used the Love Note Confetti Cut along with the Class Act Confetti Cut solid rectangle die to create my shaker box. 



 I can't get enough of those sweet Petals 'n Posies, too. I used the Confetti Cut dies to cut a trio that accents the corner of the shaker element and added a pretty Beautiful Banner with a sentiment from Petals 'n Posies stamp set. (all links below)

Here is a close up of the sequins I used in my shaker card. Super cute from Pretty Pink Posh. 











Check out all the ways you can combine these words!
