Colourful Masterboard

Morning, folks!  I decided to make a masterboard that I could cut up for cards.  I started by sponging my Dylusions paints onto a sheet of A4 card using Mini Blending foam.  Next came some stencilling using Tim Holtz Stencils, then then stamping with Dina Wakley Textures using Ranger Archival Ink.

Then I started chopping the masterboard up for card fronts and toppers:

148mm sq card (Dymo tape sentiment)
A6 card
Topper on A6 card - this one's my fave!
This could either be a bookmark or a gift tag.

After I'd finished sponging each colour, I got rid of the excess paint by sponging circles (as recommended by Dyan Reaveley in one of her videos) onto another sheet of card:

Out came the circle stamps from the Finnabair Don't Forget To Fly set.  I allocated one stamp per colour, and stamped over all the circles, filling in the gaps with some of the smaller stamps:

And now I've got another masterboard!

Have a crafty day!
