Masterboard Monday.

 Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

I am here today to show you a card made with this Masterboard:

I applied Prima 3D matte Gel through Tim Holtz stencils and allowed it to dry then added various colours of Oxide inks.
I only chose the lighter colours of ink as I wanted a nice bright spring like finish to the card.

Next I added text stamping, part of which can be seen here again using the Oxide Inks.
Once the ink was dry I rubbed over the stencilled areas to remove the ink giving the effect that the text was behind it.
Text stamp:

Dies by Memory Box next and then mounted the Masterboard onto matching layers of card which were placed onto a black card blank which I had prepared earlier by stamping using the same inks and text stamp.
I completed the design with matching ribbon, coloured split pin brads, stickles glitter glue on the butterfly's wings and a few extra small butterflies from my stash.
 Hope you like this as it's not my usual choice of colours but a nice simple card for a spring birthday and if you use some left-over Masterboard, it's fairly quick to make too.
I would love to hear your comments.
Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

  1. The fabulous oxides background looks gorgeous and the flower and butterfly diecuts sit beautifully on it. Love the finished card, it's perfect for a Spring birthday xxx

  2. I just love the beautiful Oxide background you created on your masterboard Angela, the colours have blended beautifully and I love that the script appears to be in the background too! Your card is so pretty too! Hugs, Anne xx

  3. Beautiful. Is it bad that my favourite part is the green and black stripe running across the bottom of it giving a beautiful contrast?! Cara x

  4. Beautiful colours on your card background Angela, love these MB dies you have used, make a wonderful birthday card.

  6. Fabulous Angela, the black is so striking against your gentle oxide background xx

  7. Oooh Angela, this is juicy gorgeous! Love the use of the Distress Oxides and stencils, and how the gel medium acts as a resist. This I HAVE to try, once I eventually get around to opening my DO's (too busy for art atm...) Beautiful card, too, with lovely spring colours, to celebrate the best time of year!
