Lucky Duckling

Good Morning,

Alix here to say Hi and bye "temporarily". I had a great time spending last four months hanging out with everyone here. This is my last card for Spring Design Team term. But I will be back sometimes to the blog and show you guys more of my crafting experiments and adventures!

Today's card is all about how grateful for us to have our moms. I used multiple Lawn Fawn stamp sets. Lawn Fawn Rub-A-Dub-Dub stamp set for ducklings, Lawn Fawn Mermaid for you stamp set for you for rocks, Lawn Fawn Toadally Awesome stamp set for grasses, Lawn Fawn Happy Village stamp set for the house, trees, clouds and sun. I colored all images with copic markers and set aside.

To build a scene, I wanted to create a lovely and calm scene of Mommy duck taking all kids to river playing while sun was just rising up. After getting some references photos from Internet, I hand drew a river outline on Tim holtz Distress watercolor paper and cut it out.

I grabbed another Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper and masked some of area with post-it paper. Then my ink blending part started. I used Tim Holtz distress oxide in Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio for the grass areas, Squeezed Lemonade and Peacock Feather for the sky, Salty Ocean for the river. A little trick for the river part, I sprayed some water on the top and removed water with a piece of paper towel. Then I mixed ink from Salty Ocean with water and dropped some ink droplets on the surface and heated to dry. Now it looks like water splash when water hitting the rocks.

I used Multi Medium Matte and Foam tape to adhered all images onto the background and I stamped sentiment using Memento ink in Tuxedo black to the lower corner. At last, I created some white flowers using Nuvo Crystal drop in gloss white on to large grass areas.

Again, Thank Vanessa for giving this opportunity. Thank you all for sharing this 4 months journey with me and I will see around sometimes!

Love from,

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
