This is the Time - Make it Monday #155 Make Your Own Confetti

Happy Sunday sweet friends!!  I knew the minute my friend Audrey mentioned this week's MIM Challenge, I was going to have to participate.  Danielle Flanders made the cutest card using die cuts and I was completely inspired.  I wanted to make confetti using something more than just generic confetti and the beautiful Papertrey Ink Hands of Time stamp set came to mind and so idea came to life.  The passing of time.  Confetti numbers.  A little gold to add class and sophistication.
Here's my idea come to life:
 I started by stamping the sentiment on the paper.  I knew where I wanted the sentiment to be and I planned to watercolor the background, so it worked best to stamp the sentiment first.  I stamped the clock face with Versamark and heat embossed with fine white embossing powder.  I water colored the background with a light aqua hue and then I stamped and water colored the florals.  I just love the Garden Grace florals!! They are so fun to watercolor!

I die cut the confetti with PTI's Number Time Trio Dies, Star Gazer Die Collection, Heart Stitches Dies, and the very top of the Front and Center Die.  The clock hands are die cut from Gold Foil Paper.
The inside of the card contains a familiar quote that supports the passing of time theme as well as the sentiment.  I can't tell you how much fun I had making this card!

Supplies used:
Papetrey Ink Hibiscus Burst and Stamper's Select White Cardstock
Papertrey Ink Garden and Hands of Time Stamps and Dies
Reeves Water Colors
Bazzill Gold Foil Cardstock
Papertrey Ink Chevron Cover Plate
White Embossing Powder
Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist and Berry Sorbet Ink
Hand Dyed Seam Binding Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by!!
Wishing you a wonderful and crafty week,
Kristii

Kristii, your card is just gorgeous. Every little detail is so elegant, from your embossed clock face, your water coloring, and your gold clock hands and numbers. What a versatile set--our confetti used the same dies, but our cards could not be more different.
