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 found this amongst last year's collection and it had got put on one side and stayed unused so decided it was time to put it to good use so here goes.

  • Kim Dellow stencils, apply Gel through the stencil and allow it to dry which gives great texture and resists the inks which were added next.
  • Add the colour using Distress Oxides with a blending tool and wipe over the gel detail to remove the ink.
  • Stamp the text and rub with a dry cloth to remove the ink from the flowers which gives the effect of the text appearing to be behind the detail.
Now this may take a while to make but once you have it you can scan and copy it if you like which will give you more to work with. A laser printer is best for this and you can then alter the colours too with an art program if you wish but well I have just cut up the original as I like the texture too.
How ever you choose you can make cards very quickly and you don't need a lot of extra detail with something as lovely as this. You have great detail while still having a nice flat card to go in the envelope.
So here's what I've created with the first section.
And here is the finished card.
Mounted in sections with craft card blank, lilac and white layers cut with Sue Wilson dies and a square of the Masterboard on top.
Before attaching the Masterboard section I tied it with a Lilac cord and then added some Tim Holtz butterfly dies and Sizzix sentiment die.
The butterflies were completed with matching Stickles glitter glue.
I also used some of the matching stamps to decorate the inside of the card and added a stamped sentiment.

Hope you like the finished card. Still loads of the Masterboard left so you can be sure there will be more cards to follow.
 I would love to hear your comments about this project.
Many thanks for stopping by and happy creative week,

This is a fabulous idea Angela, I would never have thought to scan my backgrounds so they could be used again or replicate a card. Genius idea. Love how the stamps flow inside too, a fabulous created card.
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead. Tracey x
