Masterboard Monday.

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

Hi Blogging Buddies  hope you have had a nice weekend.
This week's Masterboard is technique based.
I happened to be looking through some of my stash and found some dies by Paper Artsy that I haven't used for a while so thought I would have a play.
Not knowing quite where this would take me, I started by die-cutting some of the shapes.
Which I attached to a piece of card. See below.

I ended up with a piece of A4 card with lots of holes.
Now that has got to be useful LOL!

I wanted to experiment so also cut some slightly thicker pieces with corrugated card. As you can see anything can be used, this is old packaging.

I tried these out for embossing but it might be easier to see if I colour them.
Embossed side.

Debossed side.

Also had a go at using the negative sheet as a stencil with ink sprays.

And finally, I applied embossing paste through the negative sheet and allowed it to dry, then sprayed it with mica sprays.

Cleaned up the ink with card and liked it so much that I added a little more.

So it took me quite a way, ending not only with a Masterboard but a stencil, some nice coloured card and an embossing folder.
Good Ha!
All I have to do now is decide what to make with the Masterboard.
I love it and I hope you will do too.
Happy crafting,
