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:

It's a while since I had a play with tissue paper so I thought I'd get it out and make some mess Lol!


I started with some die cut pieces of the tissue.
Spray the Watercolour Paper with water and lay the pieces down and spray with water again. 
I like to place another sheet of paper on the top as this gives you two Masterboards to work with when complete. At this stage the more you can wet the paper the better.


I have continued to build this pattern up with other pieces of tissue but you can stop at any time. Dry the paper before adding the next layer and then spray the surface with water again. Once the colour transfers it doesn't tend to come off and the same goes for the colour on your hands too Lol!


The top sheet of card always tends to be lighter but you can place something heavy over the top to ensure good connection with the tissue paper.


And this is where I stopped.




 I decided to use the lighter sheet first to stamp onto.


 Using a new stamp by Woodware and of course the all important Stamping Platform.




I have heat embossed this with clear powder.
Now how effective is that!

All we have to do now is mount it onto a card blank.....well almost!
I can't be seen wasting the tissue paper that I removed from the paper so:


I've used it to decorate the card blank. 
I like the paper at this stage because the colour looks slightly faded and it blended when wet from one piece to another.


Next I stamped over this with a text stamp for a little more interest and then mount the stamped image onto matching card and then on to the card blank.

I completed the card with a sentiment stamp by Woodware and some Altenew enamel dots. 
I so love these gems they are so different from the shiny ones and nice and flat too.

Now I have to say this can be quite messy as you need plenty of water and you do need tissue paper that bleeds which is generally referred to as 'Bleeding Art Tissue' though many other tissue papers will bleed and it often warns you of this on the packet so that can be used too.
I would advise a fairly heavy weight of Watercolour Paper too as it's going to get pretty wet. The one I've used here is 300gsm and is available at WH Smith's Book Shop. If you don't live in the UK I'm sure there are plenty of other places where you could get this including Amazon.

I have plenty of masterboard left over and a few ideas and more techniques that I plan to use so expect to see more of this later.

Hope you enjoyed watching me make this card and I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Angela this is brilliant! I love the paper you've created, and the card is fabulous with the stamped tissue paper pieces. That's a really lovely Woodware stamp, I like a nice collage stamp (or 20 lol) I'm a huge fan of the stamping platform too, it's a gadget that I actually use! Have a very happy week, Sue xx

Not a technique I have tried but it looks fun as well as effective! I love the stamp too, Woodware's latest release has many lovely stamps... Your finished card is beautiful Angela. xx

Fabulous Angela. I love Bleeding Art Tissue, very messy but so worth it. A little hard to explain the colour of my fingers the next day at work, but who cares. All done in the name of art lol.
I love adding a little gilding wax to the tissue when I stick it down on card. It highlights the texture and makes amazing backgrounds.
Hugs Kimx
