Video Tutorial - Lawn Fawn - Jump for Joy - Watercoloring a Fun Fall Scene

Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a wonderful day! :)  I'm honored and thrilled to announce that I have been asked to join the Butterfly Reflections, Ink design team and today is my first DT post :)  I'm so excited so without further adieu, let's get started :) 
I created a video tutorial for my card today and here it is:

(To view on YouTube, click HERE)

And here are some pictures of my card:

To create the background of my card, I used my Gansai Tambi 36 set Watercolor Paints (red, orange, and yellow) to paint the background.  I then used my Gansai Tambi Starry Colors Pearlescent Paints to create the gold shimmer effect on the background.  Next, I colored all the critters from the adorable Jump for Joy Stamp Set by Lawn Fawn using my Zig Markers and a Detailer Watercolor Brush.  To color the fox, I used Brown, Red, Gray, and Light Gray.  For the Hedgehog, I used Dark Brown, Brown, Light Brown, and Almond Pink.  For the Owl, I used Dark Brown, Brown, Light Brown, and Yellow.  For the leaves, I used Red, Deep Red, Orange, Olive Green, Brown, and Yellow.   

I then cut out my critters and the colored leaves using the Coordinating Jump for Joy Dies.  Next, I cut out the tree frame from the Leafy Tree Backdrop Die Portrait from Lawn Fawn out of brown cardstock.  I adhered it to the watercolor panel using a strong double sided tape.  I then cut out some leaves (also from the same Leafy Tree Backdrop Die Portrait from Lawn Fawn) from various colors of cardstock and then added glitter to them and to my colored leaves using my Wink of Stella Glitter Pen. I then adhered my leaves to my tree and around the panel using Glue Dots.  I then adhered my critters and pile of colored leaves using foam tape.  I also stamped my sentiment (also from the Jump for Joy Stamp Set by Lawn Fawn) onto the panel with black ink. 

And that's it! :)  I hope you enjoyed today's card and video.  Make sure to head over to Butterfly Reflections, Ink to check out all the amazing products.  Big hugs!!!

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
