Vellum + Oxide Inks = Marble Effect

Hello BRI Friends today I want to share with you a very cool technique with Oxide Inks and Vellum to create the look of Marble, it looks awesome!


CARD DETAILS: 

I started with two Vellum pieces (you will need a thick vellum for this technique), I first put a little of  Broken China in my Ranger Mat and I added a little bit of water (you want the ink to the thick), and smooshed the Vellum into the Oxide Ink (I did not add more water to the piece) I only added the oxide ink and dry it with a heat gun, I did the same thing with the Wilted Violet and Cracked Pistachio inks in the parts I thought it needed.  When I finally got the look I wanted... "this next step is important" I flip the vellum piece and used the back of it for my card.  It looks great just like marble.


I used one of the vellum pieces for my card base and one to stamp the flowers from the beautiful Alternew Adore You Stamp Set. I stamped most of the flowers in the set with VersaMark ink and added Gold Embossing Powder.  I hand cut them and ended with lots of flowers to work with.


I  assemble the cards with the beautiful flowers and added the Postage Stamp Elle-ments die in black cardstock to frame both cards.  For the sentiment I used  MFT Label Maker Sentiments Stamp Set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.


I finally added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix, this cards look so elegant that you can use them for many occasions. Here are some closer looks to the cards.  Oxide inks are very vibrant, but with this technique you can get a more soft look to them.




I hope you enjoyed my little technique and can give it a try, thank you so much for stopping by today have a wonderful day and Happy Summer to you all!

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…
