This week's Color Throwdown swatch is just screams Halloween! I made my card base from Kraft Heavyweight Card Stock, used Pebbles Thirty-One 6X6 papers and did some stamping with my Reverse Confetti Cast A Spell Stamps and Cast A Spell Confetti Cuts. I used some spooky sentiments from the Reverse Confetti Spooky Sentiments Stamp set. I decided to flip the RC - SFYTT # 17 sketch and used my Reverse Confetti Circles 'N Scallops Confetti Cuts, Love Note Confetti Cuts and Give Thanks Labels Confetti Cuts. I embellished with some American Crafts Hemp cord and clear sparkly YNS Gumdrops.

Here is the dramatic colour combo for this month's RC challenge and I always love drawing inspiration from the accompanying graphic too!

I decided it was time to get a little inky and a lot messy ;) and tried the popular Boke Technique! This Technique is perfect for this month's colour combination, the yellow and bright pink are fun and flirty and the grey adds a real dramatic and edgy feel to it all. 

So, I pulled out my Distress inks - Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick and Black Soot and created the colour washed background on watercolour paper. I then made my stencil with circle dies from the RC Circles 'N Scallops and Fresh 'N Fruity Confetti Cuts just cut from cardstock as I didn't have any acetate sheets around. I stencilled in the white spots with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink and to get the small circles I pressed a juicy dauber directly to the paper.  After I was sure the background was completely dry (the next day) I stamped the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti In a Big Way Stamp set. I added some Pink American Crafts Hemp cord and a sprinkling of sparkly silver Gumdrops.

I wanted the  inside to be simple and so I just added a sentiment from the Beautiful Banners Stamp set and Beautiful Banners Confetti Cuts.

I made a second card as I was having SO much fun creating the water-coloured backgrounds. This time the emphasis is on the bright yellow and I added some yellow American Crafts Hemp cord and yellow Gumdrops. Again, I stamped another pretty, scripty sentiment from the Reverse Confetti In A Big Way Stamps set.

I finished of the inside with the Beautiful Banners Stamp set and Beautiful Banners Confetti Cuts.

Reverse Confetti...Friends 'Til the End!

Hey 'Fetti friends! Just popping by with a card that I made with my Reverse Confetti Stamps and Confetti Cuts! I was hoping to have this card ready the other day for the SFYTT #16 recap but life and my migraines got in the way and I didn't get it finished in time for the recap post. I love the pretty paper, colours and how it turned out so I thought I would finish it up and post it!

I made this card with the NEW Reverse Confetti In The Big Way Stamp set and stamped the sentiment on the Sweet Tooth Heavyweight Card Stock cut out with the Give Thanks Label Confetti Cuts. I also used the Love Note, Class Act, Circles 'N Scallops Confetti Cuts. The papers are from a MME Cut & Paste - Flair 6x6 pad. I embellished with some black Gumdrops and nest of hemp twine. I also added hearts from the Love Note Confetti Cuts and the Arrow Confetti Cuts.

I finished the inside too...I made a sentiment panel with the Circles 'N Scallops and Give Thanks Label Confetti Cuts and the banner from the Love Note Confetti Cuts. I stamped a sentiment from the Rocky Raccoon Stamp Set

Thanks SO much for stopping by and having a little look at my card with the Reverse Confetti In A Big Way Stamp set
