Masterboard Monday

Hi Blogbuddies, it's been a while since I posted Masterboard Monday due to the slot being taken up by other things.
However today I have a Masterboard to show you which was a swap I did with a friend.

I so wanted to make her something special with it and this is the result.

I am entering this in the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 3
Faux Tea Rose Technique.
This month they are being sponsored by: Inspiration Emporium with a chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate.

These are the stages in making:

I started with a piece of corrugated card which I painted cream with acrylic paint.
I then used various masks to apply pattern and colour as you can see below.

Next I ripped up some strips of the masterboard and edged them with distress ink.

After attaching these to the card, I used a mask to apply a corner using embossing paste.
I didn't have exactly the colour I wanted so I mixed the two together which resulted in the one at the far left.

Then I went on to making the flowers using  Tim Holtz die.
Again I used the masterboard and edged the petals before starting to curl the flower.

I used Stickles glitter glue to add texture and shine to the petals.

This die is actually a Fir Cone but makes lovely roses.

And the final piece.
I used some Tim Holtz metal findings to complete this and also some skeleton leaves, ribbon, crystal gems and pearl butterflies.
Here you can see a closeup of the flowers.

This picture shows clearly the text which was applied using a 6x6 Crafters Workshop mask with grunge paste. When this was dry, I rubbed over it with gilding wax.
A couple of pins complete the butterfly which was die-cut using a Spellbinders die and I used a Tim Holtz pen nib for the body.

The skeleton leaves are quite delicate, here they are below.

I do hope you enjoyed this project and maybe have a go at making your own Masterboards if you haven't already.
There are so many techniques that can be used to make a Masterboard, be it stamping, stencilling, masking, embossing, resist methods, spraying the paper, collage and so it goes on, whatever is your chosen technique.
The great thing is that you can make it how you like using the colours you like best.

And when you have finished making your Masterboard you can turn it into any product that takes your fancy, punch or die cut it.

That's it for now so happy crafting.
Back soon,
Angela xx
