Beautiful Day

Hello! Rubeena here. It is my last month being on the BRI Design Team and am sad that it's coming to an end.

I began by using Tim Holtz watercolor paper and watercolored freely in the center with Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers. Using MFT Die-namics Stitched Circle Frames, I die-cut where I watercolored. I used the same circle frame die to die-cut double-sided foam sheet to use for the shaker part. Then I used a rectangle die to cut the same paper to make it smaller than A2 size. I matted it down with Scor-Tape. I taped down one side of the circle foam sheet. I took the sentiment from WPlus9's Doodle Buds and stamped it on the inner circle with Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink. I taped that down with Scor-Tape within the foam sheet.

The circle frame that I die-cut was taped over some Dura-Lar film (acetate alternative). I fussy cut the excess. I added some Scor-Tape behind the circle frame part. Then I carefully removed the top part of the foam sheet and added 3mm Sparkling Star Sequin in Iridescent White. I closed off the shaker card by taping down the circle frame over it.

On white cardstock, I stamped some of the floral doodles in Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink. I colored them with various Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and fussy cut them. I added some dots to the florals with a white gel pen and the black Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pen. I added the florals on the card as shown in the image and tapped some drops of Peacock Feathers around the frame. I taped down the whole piece over a white card base.

The Zig Clean Color Brush Pens that I used: 202 Peach Pink, 025 Pink, 050 Yellow, 070 Orange, 020 Red, 048 Emerald Green, 047 May Green, 031 Cobalt Blue, 042 Turquoise Green, and 010 Black. 

Thank you for stopping by!

Baby Tags featuring the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!

Happy Monday! This is Kim Hamilton and I am so very excited to be sharing my first post with you for Butterfly Reflections Ink! This is making my first day back to work after a two-week break a happy one! I am sharing baby gift tags today, one of my friends is expecting and not sure what she is having so I made one of each! I used my  We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool  for the first time and loved it! I cut my own  Tim Holtz watercolor paper  to the size of tag I wanted (2 3/4 x 4 1/4) and cut the edges with my trimmer.  I stamped my sentiments that are by  Lawn Fawn Hello Baby  with VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder. For the girl tag I used a mix of Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral  Distress Inks  and for the boy tag I used Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron  Distress Inks .  I sprayed both tags with some water and dabbed it off. I then stamped my images by My Favorite Things  Snuggle Bunnies  for the girl and Magical Dragons for th

Painting backwards....

Hello, hello!  Norine here from The Velvet Lemon blog .  It's been a week for introductions hasn't it, but let me just say how delighted I am to have been invited to join such a talented group of paper crafters, and to contribute here at Butterfly Reflections Ink!   Today I'm sharing with you, some cards I made by working backwards.  What do I mean, you wonder?  Well, it's a technique I sometimes enjoy doing, where you "smoosh" your water based ink pads on a craft mat, mist the colors with water and then drag your water color paper through it to create a pretty mess of color.     For today's cards, I wanted a blend of blues and greens (always a crowd pleaser) and yellows/pinks.  You will always be happier with the results when you keep the green/blues from overlapping with the yellow/pinks, because that just produces an unappealing mud color.   I used a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks for this project, but any water based inks w

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

Hey, hey BRI friends!  We're hopping today to celebrate the 4th Birthday of Altenew , one of our favorite stamping companies!  You should have arrived here from the Altenew blog , and we're glad you're here to share the excitement! There are prizes and inspiration and it's going to be FUN! With you today, is Norine from The Velvet Lemon  creating for Butterfly Reflections Ink  and I have some projects to share today, that I made using some recently released Altenew products .   First up, are these two cards created with the Mega Succulent stamp set .   I stamped the image onto water color paper using the MISTI , then turned on the music and sat and colored.   I used Faber Castell watercolor pencils so I could more easily control where the color would sit and then painted with a water brush .  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of vellum, heat embossed with clear embossing powder to ensure that the ink wouldn't smudge, then tore the vel
