Blue Knight Guest Designer 5.7.2021

I have been anxiously awaiting this day for nearly a month. That is a long time to wait to tell you the exciting news. I was contacted by Lynn, the owner of Blue Knight Rubber Stamps with an invite to serve as a Guest Designer for the month of May. Of course, I eagerly JUMPED at the opportunity, in part because I have long admired the beautiful cards featuring Blue Knight Rubber Stamps that Shirley Qu posts on Facebook.

As a guest designer, I'll feature a different Blue Knight Rubber Stamps stamp set on a minimum of two cards each Friday this month. Today's stamp set is a beauty - it's called Peaceful Retreat.

For these two cards I did what I love most to do with card making - I colored the gorgeous scene with Copic Markers, but I chose different color schemes for the two cards.

Sunset/Sunrise Card

I would love to be sitting in that chair and watching the colors in the distance across the lake.

These are the colors I used to color the scene:

Clear Skies Card

Since the skies are clear, I went with brighter colors for this scene.

The sentiment on this card is from the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Mini Greetings 1 stamp set.

These are the colors I used on this card:

I think it is amazing how different a stamp/image can look, simply based on the colors used.

I agree, Jeanette. It is amazing the impact that color has on our world. How did we ever survive with black and white TV images? LOL! Your color schemes have brought this image to life. Magnificent work. TFS!
