Blue Knight - The Grove

Please Note - This is my second blog post of the day. If you're here to see my Double Duty one, it follows this one so just keep scrolling or go - HERE.

Fridays are special days - who doesn't love TGIF, right? But here on my blog Fridays are also special because they are the day I get to post as a design team member for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.

I used the new The Grove stamp set today.

You can check out the stamp set in the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps store - HERE.

Card #1

I used the masking technique to stencil inks onto a piece of white cardstock to create this scene that is framed by the lovely stamped image. To do so, I first stamped the image using a Misti stamping platform - not worrying about how well it covered because I knew I would be stamping it again once I'd finished my ink blending. That was mostly done to help me to know where I wanted to build my hills, sun, and sky. I kept the stamp in the Misti so I would be able to stamp again.

I then tore strips of scrap paper, one layer at a time and used them for masks to blend ink onto my scene. Once I was satisfied with that, I placed the piece back in my Misti and restamped the image.

Card #2

For this card, I stamped The Grove onto a piece of cloudy designer paper, using Memento Bamboo Leaves ink. I then added  a buck to the scene using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

The Scripture is from the Chickadee on a Fence Post stamp set - seen HERE.

The Buck is from the Buck, Doe & Fawn stamp set - seen HERE.

I think it's amazing to see how one stamp looks so different depending on how it's used.

Wow, these cards are gorgeous. The stamp is beautiful. I love the framing, and you are right, it does look different from one scene to the next. Nicely done. Thanks for sharing!
