Reverse Confetti July New Release Blog Hop

Hey there, 'Fetti Fans!
Welcome to the Reverse Confetti July New Release Blog Hop!

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog and 
you should have made it here from the incredibly talented Amy Sheffer's blog
It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. 
We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all of the new Reverse Confetti stamp sets & dies,
which are available to purchase today!

For my blog hop project, I decided to pair three of the new stamp sets:
Later Alligator, Weather It Together & Posted Note Sentiments
and make a birthday card for Jonah's best friend.

Here's my card:

On a piece of watercolour paper, I stamped the alligator (from Later Alligator), 
the clouds from Weather It Together & the sentiment from Posted Note Sentiments
in versafine onyx black ink and heat embossed them in clear.
I also did the same thing for the "happy birthday" 
(from the previously released stamp sets: The Buzz & Sweet Thing.)

Then, I painted my card using a paint brush & some dye ink that I pressed onto 
my acrylic block, to which I added water.
