Reverse Confetti ~ April Color Challenge

Hi there! I'm back today with MORE Reverse Confetti to share! Today is the first day of our April Color Challenge and you won't want to sit this one out. Check out these fun, springy colors!

Here's my card using the newly released Carton Cuties

I wanted to make my Easter eggs speckled, and achieved this look by putting down some watercolor on watercolor paper, spritzing it when it was dry with more paint, and got this cool splotchy look! They almost look like those malted milk balls...mmmm....chocolate...oh sorry, distracted myself:)

I wanted my background cardstock to mimic the speckled look, so I cut three strips of matching cardstock and then smooshed them around in some watercolor to get the same effect.

As I mentioned, the egg, cartons, and sentiment are from Carton Cuties (cut out with matching Carton Cuties Confetti Cuts) and the banner stamp and die from Beautiful Banners and coordinating Beautiful Banners Confetti Cuts. That's it from me today, make sure to stop by the Reverse Confetti Blog for a list of designers with projects to share with you! Thanks for stopping by today:)
