It's time for the last blog challenge topic of the year from Paperartsy - Masterboards - as you know I love making these, and had spent much of Sunday making them and turning them into Christmas cards. Sadly I didn't photograph any of them in the making, so would need to have another go (hurrah!) so I could enter the challenge. As always there was a fabulous video by Leandra to get us in the mood
But first, I'd like to say a big thanks to Paperartsy (and random.org of course) for the prize draw I won for the last challenge. I have still to choose my goodies!
So, tonight, I have made another masterboard and even persuaded the computer to download the photos from the camera... eventually!
I added a bit of Snowflake, as I wanted to be able to stamp on top.
Think there must be something on the underside of my craft sheet, that needs cleaning as I got lots of little dots where the brayer rubbed over the paper!
unfortunately the second row I managed to rotate the stamp for the first impression, so rather than throw the whole thing away (my first reaction) I embraced the imperfection and made it part of the design..
It was looking a bit dark so I took some heavy white gesso, I was going to splatter it but it's too heavy, and wouldn't flick, so as I have an old toothbrush in my penpot, I used that and just dabbed the gesso over it - think it looks a bit like snow falling, don't you?
i'll make this into Christmas cards soon. In the meantime I'm entering the Paperartsy challenge "masterboards"
