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.

Mirror Image Cards with Blue Knight Rubber Stamps

Hi guys!
I have a couple of cards to share using the mirror technique.
Lynn over at Blue Knight Rubber Stamps has a great video
on this.  All you need is a piece of acrylic to stamp the image
on and the flip it over to get the mirror image.

 The deer and the frogs are the stamps that I tried this technique
out on.  I wanted the deer facing each other, as well as the frogs.
The stag is the original stamp and the doe is the mirror image.  I stamped the
doe on acrylic then turned the acrylic image to my card front.  I repeated
the process until the image was good and dark. I used a black marker
to make the out line crisp.
The frog is one stamp.  The left one is the stamp and the right is the 
mirror image stamped on acrylic.  It is a little fuzzy but still looks
like a frog. I cleaned up the outline with a black marker. All the color is
added using PanPastels.
Products used:
Blue Knight Rubber Stamps: Momma Bear and Friends, The Dirt Road,
Lily Pond, Wetlands, Birds 2 and Happy Hedgehog.

A Composition Notebook re-make with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L~

Hi guys!
I have a really oldie but goodie to share.  Remember when composition
notebooks were all the rage to give the cover a re-make?  I did one.
I went old school with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

I used some much loved Jenni Bowlin products to create the cover.  Remember ?
The embellishments are made out of heavy cardstock so I needed strong
adhesive to adhere and stay put.  I used Extreme-Double Sided Tape 1/4" to adhere
the black cardstock to the front of the composition notebook.  The inside has
 Keepsake Envelopes to hold "stuff".

All the details are on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog ~ check it out!!!
