Countdown to Confetti: Later Alligator & Weather It Together

Hey, 'Fetti Fans, welcome to Day 1 of the July Release for Reverse Confetti


This is such a fabulous release, with five new stamp sets and six new Confetti Cuts!
Lots of sweet goodness coming this month!

Today, we are introducing two adorable new sets with coordinating Confetti Cuts: 
Later Alligator & Weather it Together.

I decided to use both of these new sets together to make my card:

Countdown to Confetti: Later Alligator & Weather It Together Leigh Penner @leigh148 #reverseconfetti @reverseconfetti #cards

On a piece of watercolour paper, I stamped 
the adorable alligator from Later Gator & the sentiment from Weather It Together
 in versafine and heat embossed it in clear.
I also did the same with the umbrella (after masking the gator's hand).
I stamped the umbrella onto one of this month's new 
Quick Card Panels: Weather or Dot (& Stripes) -- I love this sweet chevron pattern! -- 
& diecut it using the coordinating Weather It Together Confetti Cuts.

I pressed some ink onto my acrylic block and added some water
and painted in my gator, the sky and the ground using a paint brush.
