Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Wetlands Stamp

Hello and Welcome to my Blog.  Thank you for visiting today. I have two cards for the Blue Knight Rubber Stamp Design Team using the Wetlands Stamp. For my first card I used Spectra Noir Shimmer Brush Pens to create a bright and vibrant scene.  


I created a video on my You Tube Channel detailing how this card was created:


I used water color paper and water proof ink to stamp the image. I colored the water in Aquamarine and used various colors of green to color the grass and the trees. For the mountains I used white gouache paint mixed with Brutus Monroe Black Aquapigment to create the color gray. I stamped the sentiment Happy Birthday from the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Mini Sentiments 1 set in the top left hand corner of the card. I stamped a trio of three birds from the Birds 1 stamp set in the top right hand corner of the card. I also stamped the small ducks from the Footbridge stamp set in the water. I colored the sun with Yellow Orange Aquapigment from Brutus Monroe. 


For my second card, I used Ohuhu Alcohol Markers to color a winter marshlands scene. I then used 4" Double Sided clear adhesive, covering the entire card panel, then sprinkled the entire surface with Tim Holtz Distress Glitter. This created a winter scene. 



Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you found some inspiration and will stop again.

Adding Snow to your Card - Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Winter Cardinals

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am so excited to be sharing another wonderful stamp from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps. I will be sharing two different cards using the "Winter Cardinals" stamp. The first card features "snow" created with the Marvy Snow Marker Pen. A Snow Pen can be used to highlight an area with puffy snow. It goes on wet (very similar to a white out pen). When you apply it to your card, you need to use a heat tool to make it puff up and look like snow. 
For the card above, I colored the birds with alcohol markers. I made one red, the traditional cardinal, and the other blue, for a blue bird. For the background I used the Cloud Stencil from Blue Knight Rubber Stamp and Turquoise PanPastel.

For my second card, I used glitter to make a snowy card. 
I created a video tutorial on my You Tube Channel demonstrating how I made this card:



To make the glitter snow card, I colored the image first with alcohol markers. I then adhered the image to one side of double sided adhesive. I peeled the protective backer off that side, so that the sticky was facing up. I covered the sticky panel with glitter. I used the backer paper to burnish the glitter into the panel. I then removed the protective backer from the other side and adhered the panel to a piece of black card stock, creating a mat. I then adhered that mat to an A2 sized black card base.
