Challenges Galore!!

Welcome!
Today i have a card that i made for the Summer Card Camp Color Combo and PTI's Make it Monday #21 - Polaroid 2 Step Masking. This is a really fun technique, that i am sure to use again and again! For my card i decided to take the Polaroid literally and make a "polaroid" for the front of my card.



I started with a piece of Kraft cardstock and cut a piece of white scrap paper the same size. With the scrap paper i used a ruler to get my polaroid shape and cut out the inside square. Using the same technique that Nichole used in the video, i had my inside square on my Kraft cardstock and i used a piece of scrap felt and white ink to ink the white part of my polaroid. I then used the actual ink pad, to get a good white coverage.



After the ink dried, i placed the mask over the white inked part and stamped a background and a little baby onesie. I added a little white pearl just under the word Baby, on the onesie. At the bottom of the "polaroid" i stamped Happy New Baby in purple ink.



The color challenge was to use purple, pink, orange, sky blue and white. With the polaroid i got the white covered pretty good!! For the other colors i went with an orange background pattern paper, and ink the edges with white ink. Then added a pink pattern paper on top of that (edges inked too). Then a sky blue satin ribbon. I stamped the background in the polaroid blue and purple, and the onesie in purple.

Have a great day!!
