Masterboard #2

This piece is actually darker IRL but doesn't show in the scan, I think because it is a shiny surface. I started with 2 colours of Brusho's, and after spraying,then pressed onto it with cling film. After it was dry I stamped the circles(CTMH) text (Stampers Anonymous) leaves (Dylusions) I also used a white Sharpie to accentuate some of the circles.
This is my second attempt after being inspired by all the examples on the Paper Artsy blog.

Masterboards #1

I have been reading with interest the subject of masterboards on the paper artsy blog, and I am not sure who inspires me the most. I think I have taken something from everyones examples, with the exception of using a brayer.
I painted with a lovely orange paint (no label) and then sprayed with some gold glimmer mist to give it a pretty sheen The blobs of red and gold were spread out using a comb. I used some watered down black for the swipey bits in the middle, stamped the text with black soot di and used a white sharpie for the cross hatches. I am looking forward to making some cards with this.

Christmas is coming

Christmas is getting close so it is time to enter some Christmas challenges.
The background was created by smooching some distress ink on my craft mat and spritzing with water, then swiping the card through it. I also added some stamped circles and stars. Unfortunately the sparkle doesn't show up on the stars. I stamped the bird on the card and also on another snippet, so that I could layer him. He is coloured with copics and promarkers

Today's card has a vintage feel to it. I have used 2 pieces of a DP for the background, and made a tag piece by stamping French Script on an angle, on a snippet from my scrap box, then adding a vintage photo, some scraps of lace and a layered flower

Almost forgot to join the girls in Pixie's Playground, because I used snippets from my scrap box!
