Reverse Confetti June SFYTT: Kindness Matters

post 1 of 2 for HERE for my new Design Team Announcement!

Post 3 of 3 for HERE for The Heart Desires challenge #1

Hello and Happy June!  Today is the start of the Reverse Confetti June SFYTT:

Isn't it a great sketch?!  So many possibilities!  Here's how I was inspired:

I adore the sentiments/fonts that are a part of the Butterfly Dreams set!

I love using this set with ombre inks.  It really makes for a fun design!  I used the Hero Arts Ombre Lime to Forever Green.  I used the coordinating Confetti Cuts but did a watercolor wash with my Peerless Watercolors and then cut out the smaller butterflies.  I finished them up with a smidge of gold embossing.  

Originally the watercolor panel was plain but I ended up using a MFT stencil with Fresh Ink Birch.  It complements the gold accents.

Make sure you pop over to the Reverse Confetti blog to see how some of my other teamies were inspired!
