Card Monday

16 Apr

The Paper Variety challenge this time around was to make a project based off of a Paper Variety tutorial or design team project.  I chose this video by Abby.  I encourage you to watch the video-she makes a super cute card and this is such a cool technique!  Basically, she masked off the outer edges of her project, and created a scene in the middle.

Here is my take:

Supplies: Stamps: Paper Smooches; Distress Inks: Tim Holtz (Broken China, Peeled Paint); Mists: Studio Calico (Piglet, Bonny Blue, Estate Green); Ink Pad: Stazon

I actually used washi tape to mask off my border-worked a double bonus-easy to apply, and the overlapping ends stuck my project to my work surface while I inked the middle.  Just make sure to use low-tack washi tape.  The first time I tried it, I ripped the card taking the tape off.

The background was created with Distress Inks, and all of the stamped images were painted with mists.

So, there you have it-my take on the challenge!  I am also submitting this card to the Create blog challenge this week to make a spring card.

Tune in tomorrow when I will show you another card I made inspired by this video-thanks Abby!  🙂
