Little Country Church by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

 Hi guys!
I wanted to share a super sweet card today.
I'm creating with Little Country Church by
Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.


The image is stamped on white cardstock with Archival/Jet Black
ink. The coloring is done with PanPastels and colored pencils. I also used a black
fine tip sharpie to extend the rock wall and fence line behind
the church.  The card is about a 5" x 5".  I felt like it was to 
small to add the sentiment (which is so sweet) love it, so instead 
I added the silhouette girl and cat from the Girls with Pets
stamp set.  The little birds are from the Birds 11 set.
All of the adhesive is by Scrapbook Adessives by 3L.

Darling Stamp Set!!!

Vintage Car by Darkroom Door~

 Hi guys!
I have a couple of Vintage Card/Eclectic stamped cards to share
by Darkroom Door. This is from the current release and makes
a great guy card!!


These are simply created. No special supplies needed.

I used the Vintage Car set to create the background. Stamp the small
cars on the cardstock and then do the Distress Oxide inks
to the background.  Gives it a funky look!!  The focal is stamped and
matted and then added to the card front.

The Journey stencil was used to create the background
on this card. Then the Distress Oxide inks were
used to add color to the background.  The focal Vintage Car,
was stamped and cut out and then added to the
card front.  The sentiment was added next.

Products used: Darkroom Door: Vintage Car/Eclectic
Sketchy Stars, Vintage Automobile set, Journey Med. Stencil.
other: Distress Oxide inks, Archival/Jet Black, Scrapbook
Adhesives by 3L (adhesive).

Filmstrip/Seashells by Darkroom Door~

Hi guys!
I have another Filmstrip stamp to share by Darkroom Door.
This one is called Seashells.  It pairs with the Seashell set and
background stamp so well.


On both of the cards the background is created using 
Distress Oxide inks.  In case you haven't noticed I love
using this ink.
  When watered down it is like  watercoloring 
but better.  It leaves imperfections that look really
cool in the stamped image.  The Filmstrip stamp is stamped
with Archival/Jet Black.



On both cards I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L for adhesive.
 
Products used: Darkroom Door: Filmstrip/Seashells, Fishing Net,
Sketchy Stars, Happy Sentiment Stamp, Shells Background,
 Open Sea Quote, Seashells set.
other: Distress Oxide ink, Archival Jet Black, Misti /stamp
platform, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
