Sparkling Oceans of Mermaids!

Hello Everyone, Waleska here swimming by :) .... with a very sparkling ocean theme card.   I have to admit that,  the minute I saw this Honey Bee  Mermaids I knew I need them, I specially love their beautiful hair.


For this card I used Oxide Inks to create the Ocean background, I used three of my favorite ocean colors Cracked PistachioPeacock Feathers and the beautiful Salty Ocean.  I put a little of this three colors on my Ranger mat and added a little water.  I smooshed my card base to create a mix of the three colors, what I love about this technique and Oxide Inks, is that you do not have to be perfect, you just need to have fun with the colors.

I added Bridal Tinsel Embossing Powder to all the background and die cut some waves with the stitched hillside borders from lawn fawn.  I created a second piece with the same colors to be on the back of the waves.  I glue the waves with Mono Multi Liquid Glue to the card base.

I stamped the mermaid and some ocean plants and fishes with Versafine Onyx Black and added Super Fine Clear Embossing Powder.  To color them I masked her face and body with Stamping Mask Paper and I used Shaded Lilac Distress ink and Cracked Pistachio Oxide Ink.  For the sentiment I used the Die-namics Stitched Sentiment Strips.

I tucked the fish plants in the waves and used Scotch Foam Mounting Tape for the Mermaid and Fishes.  I wish you have Oceans of  Joy on your day today! Sea you around!

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

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
