Out of This World DAD!

Hello Friends, Father´s day is around the corner and I was inspired by that special occasion to create this card with lots of shimmer and very cute characters.



CARD DETAILS: I started creating the galaxy background, I used only 4 colors for that: Merman Lawn Fawn InkDistress Ink Carved PumpkinDistress Ink Twisted Citron and Black Soot.


With an Ink Blending Tool I put some of the colors starting in the corners of the card base blending heavily to get very vibrant colors, after that I apply the Black Soot Distress Ink in some parts to create the galaxy looking sky leaving some of the original colors for a colorful galaxy, and added water splatters too.


I love to mix and match different stamp sets so I used the little mustache from Dad Me Lawn Fawn Stamp Set  and mix it with the cute Astronaut from Out of this World Stamp Set my idea was to create a Daddy Astronaut. I color the planets with the same colors of the galaxy with the blending tool (I use Molotow Marker to mask the parts I did not want color) I also add a mustache to one of the planets.


I finally added some little stars from the Scalloped Box Card Pop Up in glitter paper and with a Gelly Roll White Pen I added lots of dots to create the stars.
I hope you enjoy today's card and can create something special for the Dads in your life.

Hugs,

Waleska

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

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

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
