Master board pieces

For a swap @ I created master board pieces. And oh, oh, oh.... I think I went overboard! Keeping a balance between background colors and stamping is the key, I think. Still nice pieces, though-_-

The idea is to create a background to use for your projects. A nice background for a handmade greeting card or to use in your art journal. Think of more ideas:=)

I used Gina K. Pure luxury card stock, which measures 8,5 x 11 inches. I used my Tim Holtz ink blending tool. For inking I used several Stampin' Up and Close to my Heart ink pads; you can see the colors in the background. I used quite a lot rubber stamps. These were stamped with Memento black ink. Then I cut the 8,5 x 11 inches card stock in four equal pieces with my Your Story paper cutter. I ended up with four different pieces of master board. Very nice and unique, since every piece is very different.

I like this idea and I wondered how it would work out with alcohol inks. I know that glossy paper is used for these inks, but I don't have any of it. So I took photo paper, which is also glossy. I took care while trying this out and I ended up with nice pieces of master board. In a next post I will load up a handmade card crated with a piece of this master board out of photo paper using alcohol inks from Tim Holtz.

One this piece I created dots on the photo paper. I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks: Caramel, Stream and mixatives Silver.

Then I tried to create kind of stripes on the photo paper. On top of that I stamped another layer using the  Rubbernecker rubber background stamp (French script) with distress ink (vintage photo). I will use these master board pieces for making cards.

You can use it as one piece or you can cut it into smaller pieces .. inchies of just little squares to create what you like. Make your master board pieces and enjoy!
