Making Your Own Background |Woodland Tea Party

Hi, BRI friends!

It's Dana here with another Wednesday inspiration. Today, I used Hero Arts and Waffle Flower Crafts products I recently got from Butterfly Reflections Ink shop. Here is what I came up with.

I started by watercoloring the big tree for background. I brushed brown shades of Mijello Mission Gold Watercolor paints with water on watercolor paper. After dried it completely, I drew woodgrain with general fine liner. I only have a water based pen with brown color, but it's not bad if you don't have plan to retouch it with water. 

Next, I stamped images from Hero Arts Woodland Tea Party Stamp Set and colored them with Copic markers and cut them using scissors. It's a my first Hero Arts clear stamp and I really love this! There are many cute images to be able to build several fun scenes! After coloring, I added highlights to some of them with white gel pen as well.

I die cut domes and other elements using Waffle Flower Crafts A2 Nested Domes Dies from woodgrain, white, black card stocks. I ink blended the dome from white card stock with dye inks.

I arranged colored images on toned dome and combined the result with dome frame. For sentiment from same stamp set, I white heat embossed it onto black die cut panel and foam mounted it with hemp cords as shown in the picture.

To finish, I embellished Studio Katia Iridescent Bubbles using Multi Medium Matte and mounted watercolor panel to white card base.

I hope you enjoyed this card. Thank you so much 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 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&#…

Open DT Call for Spring/early Summer Term!

Happy Spring, everyone! The weather here is... confused. LOL Thursday we had 50 degrees, Saturday we had 10 inches of snow and today it was 50 again. We just celebrated my son's 21st birthday on Thursday as many of you know from taking advantage of the celebration sale! Thanks for that. I spent all day packing and shipping orders during the day and then went out for dinner (and his first legal beer) when he got out of work that night. I honestly can't believe he's TWENTY-ONE, such a milestone and it's weird having a man child. HA! Yesterday, we spent the snow day in pjs and doing nothing which was a welcomed change. Today, my husband took our younger son skiing and my daughter and I had a girls' day which was nice. We went out to breakfast, did a little shopping and saw Beauty & the Beast. That's the lowdown over my way. I hope you've all been enjoying the weather, your families, crafting, work or whatever makes you HAPPY! :)
With the change of seasons a…
