A Magical Unicorn!

Hey, everyone! It's Lynnea and I'm here with a cutie unicorn card! Unicorns seem to be all the rage these days and I've jumped on the bandwagon! Let's dive in!






There is so much shimmer and shine on this card! I wish the camera could capture it! I'll have some close-ups later on that show the glitter a little better.

I started by stamping the hearts and rainbows from the Jane's Doodles Unicorn stamp set in Versamark ink onto a panel of watercolor paper. I also stamped the unicorn on a spare piece of watercolor paper. I embossed the images with Zing! Black embossing powder and then watercolored all of the images with my Gansai Tambi watercolor set. Once the watercolor was dry I added a thick coat of Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter to the white areas - the clouds and the body of the unicorn. I added a regular layer to all of the colored areas.






I added a coat of Glossy Accents to the clouds, hearts, and the unicorn. I thought I would put the unicorn directly onto the watercolored panel, but he got lost. So I used my Lawn Fawn Stitched Squares to die cut a square from some vellum. I popped up my unicorn with foam squares and added a sentiment with more black embossing powder.






That's all for today! I hope this magical unicorn brings a smile to your face! Until next time!,

Lynnea

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…

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&#…

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 …
