Lovable Legend + Easy Watercoloring

Hey folks!

I am so excited to share my card with you all today! Lawn Fawn is one of my FAVORITE companies and the Lovable Legends Stamp Set by Lawn Fawn is so ridiculous cute, I can't even stand it and the new Lawn Fawn Cardstocks? Yes, please!

I started by stamping my image with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink, then colored him in with Copic's. You could totally color this guy in with any color, but I really loved the idea of purple.

There is a matching die available, but I wanted to fussy cut instead.

Next, on Ranger Distress Watercolor Paper using Ranger - Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers and Pine Needles, I loosely watercolored the panel.

This is one of my favorite ways to watercolor. I start with layers of fairly diluted color and work my way to a darker color. The trick is to make sure each layer of color is completely dry before you add the next. Also I always finish my watercoloring off with splattering some clean water over it, letting it sit for just a sec or two, then pick it up with a paper towel.

Using a die from the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables Set, I trimmed down the panel.

On Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the set with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and die cut it with a banner die from the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banner Die Set.

I used another Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Die and die cut a piece of My Favorite Things Transparent Vellum and put everything on a Lawn Fawn Mermaid Cardstock Card Base.

Then, to finish this bad boy off, I added a few sequins from the Jack Frost Sequin Shaker Selction by Lucy's Cards.

That's it! easy peasy. I hope you enjoyed my card today! As usual be sure to stop in again tomorrow for more crafty fabulousness and also be sure to stop in the Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop!

Until next time!

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
