Blue Knight Rubber Stamp Design Team
Hello! Thank you for stopping by my blog. I've had the pleasure of being a guest designer for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps during the month of June 2019. During my time with the design team, I have created several projects with the Lighthouse on the Beach Stamp Set. Each project was unique and I think the process helps to illustrate how one stamp set can be used in so many different ways!
I was glad when I received the Lighthouse on the Beach Stamp to use as Guest Designer because out of all of the beautiful stamp sets that are available through BKRS, the Lighthouse on the Beach set reminds me of what I love about card making and mixed media. It offers me HOPE. The creative process is a hopeful process because I use my mind, heart and soul to think of the new possibilities. A blank white page is a mini canvas for artistic expression. Similarly in life we have hope for tomorrow! Even when we have the same set of tools and our resources have remained the same, we can have hope that there is the possibility of a new creation and a fresh start. Tomorrow gives us the chance to start all over again.
The background of this card was created using Pan Pastels, artist grade pastels in a pan format instead of a pencil or crayon. They are ultra smooth and similar to pressed powder (makeup) but an even smoother, silkier consistency. Pan Pastels are highly pigmented and easily blend-able. Using special sponge tools created especially for Pan Pastels, I used short strokes instead of longer strokes and or circular patterns. These short strokes create the appearance of texture. I was trying to represent a sunset over the beach on a hot summer day. The colors that I used for the sky were: Magenta, Diarylide Yellow, Orange and Permanent Red.
The sentiment is from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps "Bible Verses 1" and is from Isaiah 40:31. I stamped the sentiment over the sun. The eagle is from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.
