Rainbows and Distress Inks

Happy Easter Monday crafty friends! I was lucky enough to have a four day weekend break to spend with family and friends. Very relaxing with lots of love, laughs and yes some craft time :) I hope you all had a great Easter weekend.

I felt like playing with Distress Inks for this project! All of the products can be found in the Butterfly Reflections Ink. Shop


I started with a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor paper and loosely painted on a rainbow of Distress Inks (Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet) once the panel dried I went back in with some (Blueprint Sketch, Mowed Lawn, Fossilized Amber, and Seedless Preserves) to add depth.


I then decided to use the Wplus9 Color my World paint tubes and colored them and the paint brush with my Copic Sketch markers and fussy cut all of my images.  I have always loved the Lawn Fawn You Color my World sentiment so I white embossed it on Lawn Fawn Black card stock. I placed all of my elements on the Distress panel and cut the excess from my Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle die.



I also painted the tip of the paintbrush with my white Gelly Roll for the illusion of paint. Once my card was put together I added a rainbow of both 4mm and 6mm Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

If any of these products interest you just follow the links and they will take you directly to the shop! If any products are listed as out of stock, simply select the notify me option. Vanessa stocks quickly!

Have a great week!

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 the boy.  I colored m…

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 vellum and wrapped it around the card …

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 will work the same.  It&#…
