Faux Polaroids

I had a lot of fun making these faux polaroids for my travel themed card. I used waterbrush markers to color my skylines, but any coloring medium would work (paints, ink pads, alcohol markers, distress crayons etc.) The Landscape Silhouette stamp set has quite a few different scenes to choose from so you might see me repeating this technique with different silhouette stamps! 

Faux Polaroid Tutorial

Cut white watercolor or mixed media paper into 2 inch squares

Cut black card stock to measure 2 3/8' x 3"

Add sunset or sunrise colors to your white squares

Stamp silhouette scenes over your sunsets

Embellish with clouds, sun, moon, stars etc.

Adhere squares to the top of your black card stock pieces  

Cut a piece of white card stock to measure 7 1/2" x 7 3/8" and fold it in half to form a mini slimline card. Stamp a travel themed background using the Going Postal set.

that is such a fabulous idea to use these silhouette's, I have just recently bought a die like this and haven't figured out what to do with it yet, you have given me great inspiration, and I love your painted skies to go with them!
