3UP - Masterboards

So today at Paperartsy, the 3UP favourite technique, is Masterboards... you've seen what I and my fellow 3UP-ers love about this technique, this is just to share a few more of the photos

 my supplies! (I did add South Pacific too)
 the first layers of paint added
 and after the addition of some extra Antarctic and Ice Blue
 and the first layer of stamping with paint - scratchy circles in South Pacific and diamonds in Antarctic
first layer of stamping with Watering Can archival and the Lin Brown branch from ELB10
second layer of ink stamping - black this time - the bauble and robin from the same stamp set

 coloured with Inktense watercolour pencils.
cut up into squares (I got 6 plus some smaller offcuts) and ready to layer on to some card blanks - I used the same tree branch and Cornflower Blue to tone with the shades on the masterboard - on my card blanks (they are approximately 6 inch square)
and a greeting from one of the JoFY early Christmas sets
with the offcuts I took a smaller card blank and images from the Hot Pick set HPXM05 and the stars from the ELB10.  9 cards from one A3 piece of paper - and still a little strip left.  Not bad - hope  you enjoyed seeing these, and have fun with your masterboards!

Thanks again to Leandra and everyone at Paperartsy for allowing me to play at being a 3UP-er again.

Happy Christmas!!
