Cowboy Up - Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Design Team cards

 Hello and welcome to my blog. I am sharing two cards I made for the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Design Team using the Cowboy Up stamp. 

I created a short video on my YouTube channel demonstrating how I made this card:


My second card features a PanPastels background and sunset:

The Cowboy Up Stamp Set comes with three stamps. The large and small cowboy on the horse and the sentiment. 

I created the first card by following these steps:
1. Using Pixie Spray, I placed a stencil with a diamond pattern onto a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock. I used PanPastels to shade the stencil. I used the Boot Stencil (available at Blue Knight Rubber Stamps) Mask to mark where I was placing my boot. After shading with Turquoise and green PanPastels, I removed the stencil.
2. I used the boot stencil (no Pixie Spray) to fill in the boot area with Raw Umber and Burnt Sienna Tint Pan Pastels. 
3. I used a stamp positioning tool to stamp the Cowboy silhouette image. I used Catherine Pooler midnight ink to stamp the Cowboy and the sentiment. 
4. I used hair spray to seal the PanPastels. 
5. I layered a piece of black cardstock behind the card panel then adhered both to a white A2 Card base.

Here's how I created the second card:
1. Using masking paper, I die cut a large circle to be used as the sun in the background behind the Cowboy. I placed the circle mask on my Bristol Smooth Card Base.  
2. Using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Reverse Cloud Stencil, I created my background with orange and yellow PanPastels.  I used the colorless blender to blend the orange and yellow PanPastels. 
3. I removed the circle mask. I colored the sun with yellow PanPastels.
4. Using a stamp positioning tool, I stamped the Cowboy stamp directly over the sun. I used Catherine Pooler Midnight Archival Ink to stamp the Cowboy image and the sentiment onto the card panel. 
5. I sprayed the panel with hairspray to set and PanPastels and prevent smudging. 
6. I used a piece of Kraft cardstock as a mat to layer the panel and adhered it to a white A2 card base.
