UPDATE: You can find the tutorial for the masterboard on my tutorial page. Just click HERE
Well, I'm sorry I didn't post a card yesterday. It's been a busy week again (outside of card making). But I am posting a card today for the Frosted Designs challenge. The theme today is:
Your favourite technique
This is one of those challenges that really sets me a challenge; there are so many techniques that I like to use...so which one do I pick. Oh the choices! ;o) I settled on one that has been a firm favourite with me since I first saw it - The masterboard technique. I love to use masterboards as the background papers to my cards. I've taken photos of how this particular masterboard was created and I'll be posting the tutorial when I get home from work tonight.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Lace, Pins & Pearls
Simon Says Stamp - Mother's Day / Girly (a pretty, girly card)
Spoonfull of Sugar - Beads
Here's a tutorial on how I made the masterboard that I used as the backing paper on this card.
I randomly stamped a Tim Holtz paisley stamp onto cream card in versamark ink and then heat embossed with Kaleidoscope embossing powder.
Using a blender, I smudged the card in random blotches with Tattered Rose and Weathered Wood distress ink. The I misted the card with water and waited for it to dry.
I took a Papermaina stamp and inked it with Polar Blue versamark ink then stamped randomly on the card.
The final stamp I used was a tiny one from a Laura Ashley set. This was inked in Versamark Orchid and randomly stamped over the card.
Tip: Make sure to stamp over the edge of the card with some of the shapes so that only parts of the stamp are on the card.
The tutorial photos were taken by electric light so the colours are showing up stronger. In daylight this colours are more subtle as you can see in the card.
