Polaroid 2-Step Masking

I cannot recall if I've had a chance yet to play in the Make it Monday techniques posted on the Papertrey blog, but this week I did! Yay! It is so nice not to be traveling so much so I can get inky and crafty.

This week's Make it Monday is a Polaroid 2-step masking and you'll find the directions where I highlighted the link. The only thing I don't like about this is how long it takes my white craft ink to dry, but then again I have humidity issues in the basement. I'd like to try it again and play around more with the framing and the stamps I use there, in this instance I used Turning a New Leaf. The focal image is Autumn Abundance and I used prismacolor pencils. I chose kraft paper because I like the tone I get with the prismas on that paper.

Thanks for looking! Happy stamping!
