Love all of these and they will pair nicely with sets already in the

Land and Sea with Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!!
I have a few projects to share using Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.
These projects are created with one of my favorite stamps by
BKRS!! It is called Land and Sea. 
I love anything with shells on it :):)

I love everything about this stamp!! I used Distress Oxide inks to
 create the background for the card.  Then stamped the image with
Archival/Jet Black.  Some extra images were cut out and added

Here is an Art Journal page created with Distress Oxide inks and stencils,
to create a "sea worthy" background for the shells!  The stencils are by
Darkroom Door.
