Masterboard Monday and Imagine Crafts.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi everyone, been playing with some goodies from Imagine Crafts (Tsukineko).

Silver and Pink Creative Medium (Embossing Paste).
Irresistible Pico Embellisher.
Stazon Studio Glaze.

I started with a square canvas.

Using a mask I applied the silver Creative Medium. This is a lovely thick creamy paste.

And here are the results.

I covered this with a coat of white Gesso and left it to dry.

The next thing was to make the Masterboard which I did by using the Studio Glaze over shaving cream.

Place the card over it, pull away and scraped off the cream revealing the pattern. Just love this technique.
I repeated the technique again using the same shaving cream and as you can see there is still colour there just a more subtle finish to it.

I used some of the ink to colour the top and bottom of the tag and then attached the marbled paper.

I used some of the Creative Medium to make embellishments too by putting it into a mould. I wasn't sure when I did this how well it would work but it set brilliantly. 

Here you can see that I have applied more detail with embossing paste through another stencil and when dry I added colour using distress inks and handwriting with the Pico Embellisher.

More dotty details, stamped sentiment and handwriting on the tag.

More details on the canvas too. 
I used some of the spare marbled paper, created raindrops and more handwriting.  
The canvas is ready now for the tag to be attached.

Here are the stencils I used.

And the dies to make the butterfly.
I tried colouring some black card too with the Stazon Studio Glaze which looked gorgeous on this.

Also used some of the card to cut clouds and used a large embossing tool to shape them.

Here you can see the finished butterfly which was enhanced with the glaze.

As you can see I have added some die cut ferns and arrows to balance out the composition and darkened the corners slightly with more Distress Ink.

So that's it for today.
I hope you like it.

Back soon 
happy crafting,
