Masterboard Monday

 Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
I've been having a little play with some Pixie powders and Brushos applying them through a stencil and spraying with water to make this Masterboard.
It is a good idea to seal the finished design as this will continue to react with water.

I also ended up with these which were mop up papers, I like them both just as much but today I'm going to show you what I did with the mop-up papers so sit back and enjoy.
The first thing to do is to separate the layers and cut away the section you wish to use.
Then attach it to the card blank.
I used PVA glue with a piece of stiff card for this so that I could spread it thinly, a palette knife would work too. Then went over the top of the design so that it was completely glued down and the ink was sealed.
Take a fine nail file next and gently rub towards the back of the card along the edge to remove any rough bits of tissue.
At this stage it's just a matter of adding whatever embellishments you like to complete the design.

I've used some Tim Holtz diecut flowers and some stick on dragonflies.
The sentiment is Tim Holtz too.

And here is the finished card.
I think it has a quite summery feel to it so great for this time of the year.

I'm quite pleased with that and there's lots more mop-up tissue left to play with so I may well be back with this technique again.

Who knows I might even use the Masterboard too! Which was the original idea but I obviously got distracted Lol!

 I would love to hear what you think about this technique.
Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Great technique that I will be trying! Your results are fantastic, and I'm so pleased you were 'distracted' by those mop up papers! Thank you for sharing at A Vintage Journey in our Stencil It challenge! Hugs!

Great technique. I find mop up tissues etc are a great way to push our creative "out of the box" thinking. Not tried my brushos through a stencil though-great idea.

Those Brusho flowers look beautiful, and how great to have double the artwork by using the mop up papers. I love how the die-cuts look layered up over the top. Thanks so much for joining us on A Vintage Journey.
