Masterboard Monday: Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 165: Monochrome.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

Kim is hosting our challenge today and the theme is Monochrome.
We would like to see your creations using MOSTLY one colour (hair and skin tones are allowed). Please make sure though that there is only one other main colour. 
You can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule!

My project for this Challenge:

The stages for making the masterboard:
It's very difficult to see the first stage but this is where I started by adding sections of 3D paste around the card using the stencils below.

At this stage I added colour using a blending tool and several colours of blue distress ink, then rub over the embossing gently and the detail comes to life.

The next job is to cut up the Masterboard ready to make the cards.

For this project I cut several squares measuring 2"x 2" and layered them with silver mirri card and then onto black.

 The card now needed a sentiment and an embellishment to complete the card and here is how I finished this card.

 Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of vellum, heat emboss and cut to the shape required.

Die cut the embellishments and then place them in a pleasing arrangement.

I had a bird and a square left over and it seemed a shame to waste them.

And there you have it.
Hope you enjoyed watching me make this and will pop over to see what my team mates have made and join in with the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers.

Have a great week and happy crafting,

Angela xXx
