Paperartsy - Masterboards

Hi ya, wow didn't December arrive quickly lol.  I thought I had better post my first Christmas Card before January comes :-).  Today I am playing along with Paperartsy and their challenge is Masterboards which I have really become to love.  I have so many different ways and most of this years cards are done this way, totally in my style, lots of painty mess :-).  Each day this week I shall be posting lots of Christmas creations, plus today I have a tutorial showing how I made my masterboard.  All the products I used are at the bottom of the post :-).

 I used the masterboard panel and added some script stamping with very light
silver, some dots and silver embossing powder.
I stamped the sentiment in black, then added some bubble wrap stamping.
I also embossed a postmark.  The chipboard bauble was covered with the tissue
and then a script embossed with silver.  The Noel was cut out and added
with some silver string.  Some scribble lines completed the card.

Tissue for texture

The tissue left over from underneath the patterned tissue.
I used sprays to give some shine.  Underneath is a piece of mixed media card
so I can make another masterboard for more cards.

I literally stuck my fingers in the paint and spread with my hand.

Next brayer snowflake

Used bubble wrap

then some fruit covering

not sure where I got this from but it makes lovely little diamonds.

Next I used hologram embossing powder

you can see here how subtle it is.

Some stamping on the tissue

Why do we end up working in such a small space lol

This is the start of the masterboard from the spraying the tissue.

Did another one in green.  Really love the pattern the tissue makes.

Thank you so much for visiting, I shall be back tomorrow.

Happy Art :-)
