Masterboard Monday

A big welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Bloggerists,  I have had a busy few weeks as there seems to be lots of birthdays this month.
So I decided we needed some "Quick Cards" but they still have to look as though you have spent time making them or friends and family will be disappointed. 

So I started with a simple Masterboard for this week on A4 card.
I saw Jo Rice using some of these masks at the Doncaster Dome and really liked the effect.
You can find some of her samples here 
Jo Rice.

I used Big and Juicy inks and ink dusters to add the colour to the card.
This is an example of one of the Masterboards.
I made several of these in different colour schemes.

This is one of the cards I have made.
The butterfly is from a set I have had for some time and is one of the things that I am trying to use up.
The colours do work really well with the blended colours I have used on the Masterboards.
Some of the butterflies are quite big too, the card below is 6"X6" so they make quite an impressive topper.

These are some more of the butterflies I will be using.

For the sentiments on this card, I used the stamps on the right which worked really well as they are curved so I used them round the edge of the wings.

This close-up shows the detail of how I used the stamps.

I added the mask detail directly to the card on the inside slightly more faded than the Masterboard and leaving the centre section almost blank then added the sentiment.
The stamps used on the inside of the card are the ones on the left,
(see below).

I have more of these cards to show you later in the week.
Happy crafting.
See you soon,

  1. I love that gorgeous butterfly and the subtle background is a beautiful setting for it. Like you I have tons of cards to make every June and July and I like the ideas that you have shared - next year I am definitely going to try and do much simpler cards! Thanks for the inspiration, as always. Will be away from Wednesday so if I miss anything, I will catch up at the end of next week. Hugs Anne xx
