Rainy Days

Hello Friends.  Hope you all had a good weekend.  Mine was really quiet and kind of boring.  They say boring is good so I will go with that.  ~grin~

I am sharing a couple of cards that I made with the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Rainy Days stamp.  Let's get started.
I started out stamping my image using Marvy Uchida black ink.  (I like using this ink with Copics.)   I colored the image with Copics and  sponged the sky using a sponge dauber and light blue Marvy Uchida ink.  

I stamped the image and colored it with Copics.  I used Pan Pastels to create the sky using yellow, orange and red colors from my Pan Pastel Sunrise and Sunset set from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.

Be sure and check out the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Blog where you can view the other team members cards.  Blue Knight also has a Fans Facebook page where design team members and Fans post their cards.    If you would like to see videos made with Blue Knight Rubber Stamps-go to their You Tube channel.  You will find lots of awesome  card making ideas at all three of these sites.

I am happy you joined me today.  Have a great week.


  1. These cards with the woman and her umbrella ring true of the week we just emerged from. The skies in both of these is amazing, just like your creative mind makes two very different looks from the same stamp! Awesome, Shirley!

  2. I'm seeing this with whilst it's raining outside, I just wish my view was as gorgeous as these are, such beautiful and different cards Shirley.
    Take care

  4. I can't believe how different these two cards look, both beautifully colored and stunning!

  5. This is absolutely beautiful...thanks...I have recently purchased this stamp and will have fun being creative !!!

  6. P.S....I LOVE pan pastels and am always looking for more ways to use them...I have watched some of Lynn's videos from BRS

  7. Is the Marvy ink that you used a permanent ink...won’t run...??

    1. LouAnn, thank you for the nice comments, they are appreciated. The Marvy inks work well with Copics, but they run when used with water colors.

  8. What a great image and demonstration of how to make one image look so different. That sky on the second one is just gorgeous xx

  9. What a dramatic difference there is in the feel and mood between both cards just by changing the background colours, love them both.

  10. What a peaceful and wonderful scene and both colourways look marvellous x.
