Ship in a bottle with Peter

Hi everyone! I'm back with another card for you all. This time I picked my favorite theme within my Lawn Fawn stamps; ocean!

When I was flipping through my stash I saw the little jar from Bugs and Kisses. And then I thought how cool it would be if the octopus from Ocean Shell-fie was holding it with something inside of it.

Another flip through my stash and it was clear; the little ship from Ahoy, Matey was perfect!

With very little masking it's super easy to stamp the ship so that it seems to be inside of the jar. When adding highlights after I colored the images in with Copic markers, I made sure to but a few lines next to each other over the images of the ship to make it seem even more as if the ship is inside of the bottle.

I made a simple background by cutting a stitched rectangle with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables and blend it with a simple gradient. I used Distress Oxide in the colors Mermaid Lagoon and Salvaged Patina. After I was done making my scene, I only stamped on some bubbles with white ink

The ocean floor was cut out of a stitched rectangle with the Stitched Hillside Borders. I ink blended it with Distress Oxide in the colors Antique Linen and Vintage Photo and I added splatters with thinned down Ground Espresso.

I decorated the scene with a bunch of stamp sets, next to the sets I already mentioned. Here is a list;

I also made a video where I make this card, you can check it out below or on my channel.


And please know you're always free to ask me anything, I will be happy to help!"
I hope I could inspire you to get crafty yourself and I hope you have a great rest of the 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 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
