Reverse Confetti - S'more Love

I hope that you have had a wonderful holiday season!    I have been on vacation this week from work and after all the holiday celebrations, I was able to sneak some crafty time in and got to use a new stamp set for me from Reverse Confetti called S'more Love.   It has been on my wish list for a while and I just love it.   I love the adorable penguins.    I decided to watercolor since I had not done it in a while and I was a little rusty.    It is so easy to reach for my Copics, I don't have to think about them and guess that is why I reach for them so often.   So today, I used my Zig Markers, which are really easy to use.  For Christmas, I got the Mission Gold Watercolors and have only used them so far to create a color chart. I have a few days left of vacation and plan to get some practice time in for them I hope!  

I stamped and clear embossed the images from S'more Love onto watercolor cardstock and then painted them with my Zig Clean Color markers.   I stamped out all the images in the set and then used the S'more Love Confetti Cuts to die cut them out once they were all dry.  


I ink blended the background with Lagoon and Iced Aqua Reverse Confetti dye ink onto some Bristol Smooth cardstock.    I used Bumblebee ink in the center to provide a glow for the fire pit.    I then splattered it with some Copic Opaque white that I watered down and used a very fine paint brush to flick on the snow.     I was going to add the snowflakes to the background but decided just to do them on the tag.    The tag is from the Goodie Box Additions from Reverse Confetti.   I stamped two of the snowflake images and then colored them with my Zig markers and added them to the card with some Hemp twine. 




The penguin on the left is warming his heart by the fire, I got that idea from a sentiment in the set.   I added some clear Pico Embellisher to the heart.  The grassy border or snow border in this case was made using the Nuts about You Confetti Cuts and cut from watercolor cardstock so that it matched the stamped images.  



I love the bright and cheery background.   I just love the Reverse Confetti inks they blend so nicely and the colors are so bright and bold!  Lagoon is becoming one of my favorites.  I added some final details with a white Signo Gel pen.  





I played along with a few challenges for this card:    Just Add Ink Choose Two - I choose the twine and tag.   Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog  - Anything Goes and PINspirational challenge - inspired by the wintery and snowy image and finally the Creatalicious Challenge - Anything Goes Challenge - with options wishes - my card is sharing warm wishes!   We all need it in this cold weather!    I have linked all challenges above if you would like to join in!  


I hope that you have a wonderful and Happy New Year!   Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving comments.   I read each one and thank you very much for all the kind and wonderful comments!    Stay tuned as Reverse Confetti has a release coming with sneak peaks starting January 5th!  I can't wait to share my projects with you!
